STORIES / Gallery 1: Bar Firpo, 2013

The Bar Firpo has had its regulars for many years, mostly old guys who would meet to play cards, read the paper, and watch TV, kind of like a social club. As the owner got older, in order to avoid future family confron- tations he decided to sell the bar and divide the proceeds among his heirs. The night I returned with a copy of the photograph coincided with the night the guys were having their final toast before the bar closed for good. Whoever bought it decided to demolish it.Tandil, Buenos Aires Province
