Valparaiso From The Water

This photo, from around the 1880s (just after Plaza Sotomayor was totalled to make room for the monument for the heroes of the War of the Pacific) shows how Valparaiso looked from the water way back when. If you look very closely, there's a white coloured house almost to the far left of the photo. That's my house. And this is the oldest image I've ever found of it.

I can't get oriented. Which angle am I looking from?

Ok, so that huge white building is where Estacion Puerto now is. Plaza Sotomayor is just to the right. My house is to the far left, just below the very highest houses. Click on the photo to embiggen it.
