Then and Now

I love looking at old photos of Paraguay and comparing them with how things are today. Some things are very different while others haven't changed much.

This is the Paraguayan Palacio del Gobierno then...

This is a more recent photo of the same palacio.

A color enhanced photo of a downtown building, El Banco Mercantil in 1900.

You can see the building on the left of this photos is the same building.

And again the building on the right side of this photo over 20 years ago. Sadly it was demolished to build a taller building.


  1. I know, I'm going to try to find a book with the old pictures in it.
