Last week at the last PHSNE auction dollar table, I found a box of Hauff Trockenplatten (dry plates) that show a number of locations, some in the United States, but some in what I assume is South America before automobiles were common. I cannot yet place them more accurately in time or location, but I'd love to try. Anybody have any idea where this city is?

There are 12 plates of varying quality and interest, but i think the entire set could be a wonderful set of short stories. These are scans of the plates.
