Item #8235



Quarto (ca. 25x19 cm). 21 card stock leaves. With 35 mounted gelatin silver and albumen photographs, including three large photos ca. 15x24 cm (5 ¾ x 9 ½ in) or slightly smaller; the rest of the photos are from ca. 10,5x16 cm (4 x 6 ¼ in) to ca. 8,5x13,5 cm (3 ¼ x 5 ¼ in). All but three photos with period pencil captions in Spanish on the mounts; two photos captioned and signed in negative by Marc Ferrez. Period style dark brown half morocco album with cloth boards. Mounts slightly age-toned, a couple of photos mildly faded, one photo with minor damage to the right lower corner, but overall a very good album of strong interesting photos.

Interesting collection of original studio photos of Chile including Valparaiso harbour and port; interesting portraits of Mapuche chief (cacique) Juan Catrileo Colipi, a Huazo (cowboy), indigenous Patagonian and Mapuche people, and Chilean potato vendors; views of the railway bridge over the Maule River near Talca; Llay Llay station of the Santiago-Valparaiso railway, Baños de Caugnene (Colchagua Valley), Selkirk’s Cave on Juan Fernandez Island, Salto del Laja waterfall, the ports of Lota (Concepcion province) and Corral (Valdivia province), &c. There are also views of the urban landmarks of Valparaiso (masonic hall, National Bank, Fiscal Mole, Sacred Hearts church, a funicular elevator) and Santiago (Puente de Cal y Canto, Santa Lucia Hill, Galeria de San Carlos, National Congress building, La Moneda palace, Parque Cousiño, La Alameda avenue, the monument to Bernardo O’Higgins, etc). A photo of an oil painting shows a scene of Chilean traditional dance cueca.
Although the photographer has not been identified, two photos from the album were found in Chilean public collections. The portrait of Cacique Juan Catrileo Colipi from the collections of Chilean National Digital Library (very similar to ours and evidently taken during the same photography session) was printed as a postcard by a Valparaiso company of Burmeister & Cia (http://www.bibliotecanacionaldigital.gob.cl/bnd/629/w3-article-613793.html). A photo of the Maule River railway bridge can be found on the website of the “Memoria Chilena” project of the National Library of Chile (http://www.memoriachilena.gob.cl/602/w3-article-68325.html).
Overall an attractive collection of original photos of Chile in the early 20th century.
