Notes on the Geography of Uruguay: Montevideo: Pocitos to Carrasco: Photo 3
We're about two miles east of the last image and in the waterfront neighborhood called Pocitos, from the stream of that name. Like dominos, old homes have been replaced by high-rise apartments.
The old homes themselves began to appear in the 1880s, when Pocitos was developed as the Ciudad Novisima. An electric tram opened in 1907, which presumably spurred further growth.
