El Fanguito-1947
The suburb of Fanguito was located on the banks of Caño after passing the factory covers . Here are some mangroves that their lands were invaded by the large number of immigrants who came from the mountains towards the Capital. If you were coming from north to south , you had to walk across the street Hoare to the mangroves and there was located the suburbs. These people walked over tables from one house to another , as the area was Babot and overcrowding was of great proportions and not to mention the diseases that they spread on the site. This neighborhood was burned almost entirely in the early decade of 1950 and the people who lost their homes were moved to the farmhouses as Residential Luis Llorens Torres had recently opened in Street Loiza .

Puedes usarla, ya que esa foto es de dominio publico. Si vas al Archivo General de P.R. vas a encontrar muchas mas o si vas a la Biblioteca Lazaro en la UPR, tambien hay mas.
