Art Deco in Montevideo’s Old City

Walking through the Ciudad Vieja, Old City, Montevideo, towards the Plaza Independencia the other day, although I was shopping and had met Mike for lunch, I also happened to have my camera with me, as I always try to do.  It’s one of the reasons I favour a tiny digital one over a larger one that might take better pics perhaps, but I’d hardly ever have it with me. I passed by the lovely little plaza, Plaza Zibala, around which quite a few of the graceful old buildings have been renovated or are under transformation.  I love the art deco period, and this city is a treasure trove of buildings and antiques from that era.  This is one of my favourites around that plaza –for the clean lines forming simple trims on the walls of the building, and the absolutely beautiful door at the main entry.
