Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
An album of 24 photographs taken in Argentina by American photographer H. G. Olds between 1900 and 1927. Views of the municipal buildings and monuments of Buenos Aires comprise the bulk of the album. Images taken in the countryside are also present.
Photographer H. G. (Harry Grant) Olds (1869-1943) was born in Sandusky County, Ohio. Around 1885 he got his start in photography as a photographer's apprentice at the Bishop Art Gallery in Sandusky. In 1887, he spent some time in Palmyra, New York working for and learning from photographer G. M. Elton, but by early 1888 he was back in Sandusky working at A.C. Platt's photography gallery, then run by his son Clayton Winfield Platt who had subsumed Bishop's business.
