A classic picture, you have made a wonderful job of restoring this. You are so very fortunate having this and I really envy your discovery. Its fun looking back in time, a hustle and bustle of this city centre and the view point is lovely displaying the day to activity. I like the treatment in warm light, I think the toning work you've done has worked really well. I like the oldie look, the dresses and faces well depicting the time gone by. Excellent work with the aging treatment and good archiving. Well done.

Great picture of everyday life with a very dynamic, it seems that everyone is on the street. Controlled chaos, very well captured with very good quality after scanning.

Not the easiest city to photo - in my memory Guatemala City is a bit of a dump - but you have got a perfect Central American shot - busy, full of people and lots of colour. Nice work, thank you, Iain

This would have been a very interesting stop over for you...... all very different to your home country.
You did a good job restoring the photo.I like the Art Deco building in the background.
