Fotografía antigua La Giralda. Sevilla. Foto Albert Dawson



Fotografía que nos muestra una vista lateral de la Catedral de Sevilla con la Giralda como parte central de la foto enmarcada por el arco de la puerta de los Alcázares de Sevilla

En la parte derecha observamos uno de los coches de caballos típicos con su conductor de pie a su lado mirando hacia la camara. Estos coches, para turistas, todavia hoy día hacen su función encontrándose su parada en el mismo lugar como hace 80 años.
La foto es un gelatino bromuro comprado en USA.

El fotografo es Albert Dawson del cual casi ningun dato he conseguido mas allá de los pocos datos que figuran en Wikipedia

Shooting the Great War: Albert Dawson and the American Correspondent Film Company, 1914-1918

 In the early days of World War I, a secret film campaign was brought to the United States. In an effort to control public opinion in this important neutral country, German officials set up the American Correspondent Film Company. As a front man for this covert operation, photographer Albert K. Dawson was sent to Berlin. Dawson's camera covered the troops all the way from Flanders' mud to the gates of Przemysl, Poland. Based on many years of research, the authors have uncovered Dawson's fascinating life and work as a war photographer, as well as his films and the way his pictures were used by the German government for foreign propaganda

En la misma tienda tenían otras fotos de similar formato de España y de otras partes del mundo lo que me hace pensar en que corresponden a un viaje documental por todo el orbe
Se puede fechar hacia 1920

In the same store had other photos of similar format of Spain and other parts of the world which makes me think that correspond to a documentary journey around the globe

It dates back to 1920
