Summary expansion
The construction of the main port of Buenos Aires, begun in 1887 with funds supplied by Argentine businessman Edward Madero, was completed in 1898. In that same year, the Buenos Aires Southern Dock Company was formed in London to build a dock on the south side of the Riachuelo, a project that had been planned ten years earlier but had never been started for lack of money. The photographs document the construction of this Southern Dock--Dock Sud, including the laying of tracks (directly on the ground) for a Decauville railway system for use by steam driven cranes, the building of a huge stone seawall, details of the extensive wooden bridgeworks, the pouring of concrete, and the seemingly endless manual labor required to complete the project. There is also a photograph of a drawing of the dock as it would look when finally completed
