Today we begin a new section which I am calling Sentimental Saturdays in which I will share photographs from the Brooks Buderus archive. A few months ago I came into several hundred slides taken by architect Brooks Buderus in the 70s and 80s in Antigua Guatemala and other cities around Guatemala, Honduras and Chiapas, Mexico.

We begin the series with a shot of the market of Antigua Guatemala taken in August 1973. One thing I have noticed while scanning the images is that Antigua Guatemala has not changed very much in the last 50 years in same cases, and quite a lot in some aspects.

Here’s video of clips filmed in Antigua Guatemala in 1946 and 1958, you be the judge and tell us what you see different and what you see the same!
