Walter Miranda Pardo's Photos of Construction along La Marginal
Walter Miranda has worked for the Peruvian Ministry of Transport since before it was the Ministry of Transport. A long-time resident of Moyobamba, he had first-hand experience of the building that took place along the Tarapoto-Río Nieva segment of La Marginal in the late 1960s and early 1970s. And much to the delight and appreciation of us historians, he had the foresight to document a lot of it with his camera.
Here are the images he has graciously shared. Each one was thoughtfully inscribed with a date, location and short description, and as a result of interviews with Miranda, I was able to augment that information with many names of those pictured (my additions are designated with parenthesis). All of this info can be accessed by clicking on the "info" icon above the top-left corner of each photo.
