  1. These are very precious photos of your grandfather and great uncle. They must have been the favourites of the girls then. hehe...

  5. I got these pictures from Pepe when I went back to Argentina in March 2006, after my father's sudden death.

    Now Pepe has passed away too; but I have these pictures to remember him by (and I have more!) :-)

  6. I haven't realized that since the pictures were taken in 1932, they're 76 years old! :-)

    I mean, wow...

  34. These are awesome, even without sentimental value. I keep gathering up old photos whenever I am home, so few people care!

    Mine is much more cheese this week, but less cheese than Astro boy. (But then I guess that demands on whose opinion your seeking). ;-)

  38. Now I know where your kids get their interest in soccer!
    I bet the girls during that time were screaming their lungs out whenever the players emerged from their dugouts!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Great old shots! There was quite a bit of different in the kit back then! Looks like the kids have soccer in their genes!

  41. Vaya!
    Me sorprendes Gabriel,
    No estaba enterado del numero tan importante de lectores y comtadores anglofonos que ya tienes.
    Felicidades.

    Bueno repito el comentario de todos.
    Son fotos muy interesantes, a mi tambien me gustan las fotos antiguas.

    Es una de las razones por las que Argentina ha sido siempre una potencia en el futbol.

    Un siglo practicandolo en todos los pueblos con pasion y disciplina.

    Saludos
