Lima 80 Years Ago – The Capital of Peru in the 1930s

Lima is the capital and the largest city of Peru. It is located in the valleys of the Chillón, Rímac and Lurín rivers, in the central coastal part of the country, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Together with the seaport of Callao, it forms a contiguous urban area known as the Lima Metropolitan Area. Lima is also the most populous metropolitan area of Peru, and the third largest city in the Americas, just behind São Paulo and Mexico City.

These vintage photos below are what Lima looked like 80 years ago.
