Images from the Penarol neighborhood, Montevideo, Uruguay. The british arrived to the area in the 1890s and purchased 14 hectares to establish what is today the Penarol neighborhood, in Montevideo, Uruguay. Over one hundred years later, the train system is partially abandoned and in many cases in ruins. Up to 2.000 people worked for this establishment in its best days (1920).
