This collection consists of an album of
photographs depicting various scenery, people, agriculture, and ruins in Paraguay in the
early 1900s. Photographs in the album include views of a fleet from the 1912 Revolution, the
Encarnación cyclone disaster of 1926, the Jesuit ruins at Jesus y Trinidad, and of the
inauguration of the Salesian Agricultural School at Ypacaraí.
The Paraguayan Revolution of 1911 to 1912 included different radical groups, including
provisional President Albino Jara, Minister of Exterior Relations Manuel Gondra, civilians,
and Gondristas. The revolution was started in Buenos Aires, Argentina due to "Gondrismo."
The fight that followed was fought in Paraguayan territory, which resulted in total anarchy.
Many Paraguayans fled the country, and national economics and commerce were significantly
affected. The revolution ended with the triumph from Gondra's sector, the death of Jara, and
the beginning of an era of stability.
