Photo Essay

Puerto Rico back then... 1930's

little house in the monte

I've never seen Puerto Rico like I saw Puerto Rico this time. It's a shame that I had to see it as a tourist and only for 10 days. I lived in Puerto Rico for about 19 years and I never explored my history like I did this time and now I have pictures to prove it.

Some parts of Puerto Rico remain intact to their original state .

These houses and artifacts are stuff and styles used back in the 30's but some of them remain current and some towns in Puerto Rico are more incline to prefer these things over technology. These are not the original houses or objects they are merely a replica of what it looked like but they keep everything as it was, updating and mending whatever needs mending so people can still see it the way it was.

Nobody actually lives in these houses or cook in the stoves etc.

Let's say its a museum out in the open.

A visual fantasy that can transport you through time.

-All the pictures in this Essay were shot with a point and shoot Canon Powershot in a rainy day September 6th 2009. I did not edited any of the pictures to preserve the essence.

    Great photos, but the title says 1930s, but the write up says 2009. Maybe a little more info?
