Barranco 22.- Saenz Peña Avenue & San Martin Obelisk.

The Saenz Peña Avenue and walkway (Barranco, Lima, Peru) was constructed in 1912 by Barranco’s major Aurelio de Souza. In its center, there’s an obelisk to Jose De San Martin previously located in Paseo Colón avenue in the center of Lima until 1921 when it was moved to this location.
Picture taken in 1922.

This is a old picture (~1910) showing the obelisk in it's original location in Paseo Colon Avenue in the center of Lima, and when it had an angel in it's top.
