Sofitel La Reserva , it is a hotel to enjoy in itself and to relax. has different options of a city hotel (keep in mind that it is 38 miles from the city of Buenos Aires Argentina and in the middle of the countryside). It is located very close to a state wildlife reserve, so some of the birds in the reserve are sometimes seen inside the park of the Hotel.

I was able to find out reservs and availabilities on the hotel landing page at booking.com

For us it is highly recommended to relax a few days and take a break.

Numismatic:  Argentine Ancient Coins

After the pronouncement of May 1810, Buenos Aires and the other provinces of the R√≠o de la Plata began the campaign of independence, sending expeditions to the High Peru, focus of realistic resistance. The Argentines took the Imperial Villa of Potosi with their mint. Coins were minted in 1810, 1813 and 1815: the last two occupations were important from the monetary point of view, since the type that was issued until then with the real bust and Hispanic emblems ‚Äď was changed by new coins that bore the symbols patriotic Union and Freedom. The same happened in the Philippines with coins minted in America, which were countermarked

Ancient Collectible Coins: Spanish Pillar Dollar

Spanish influence on American Currencies

A collaboration of Marty Martinez

Spanish Origin of Sign $

The beliefs of the fifteenth century included, among other things, the absolute danger of sailing past the Pillars of Hercules. Thus they were called at that time two promontories located in the Strait of Gibraltar: Mount Calpe to the north (Gibraltar) and the Rock of Abila to the south (Ceuta).

This was the obligatory passage of the mare nostrum (the Mediterranean) to the greater and unknown part of the enormous Atlantic Ocean. And according to the mythology of Antiquity, the colossal Hercules would have written in both columns the lapidary warning. Nec plus ultra ‚Äúnot beyond‚ÄĚ (ie: do not trespass).

Ancient Ads in 19th century ( wikipedia )

In the 19th century advertisements started to appear in weekly newspapers in England. A leadership in British ads was held by Cope Bros & Co tobacco company, founded in Liverpool in 1848 by Thomas and George Cope.

In June 1836, the French newspaper La Presse was the first to include paid advertising in its pages.

In Britain, outdoor advertising was based on hoardings (billboards): England 1835, by John Orlando Parry

In London¬†Thomas J. Barratt¬†was hailed as “the father of modern advertising”.Working for the¬†Pears Soap¬†company, Barratt created an effective advertising campaign for the company products, which involved the use of targeted slogans, images and phrases. One of his slogans, “Good morning. Have you used Pears’ soap?” was famous in its day and into the 20th century.

An advertising tactic that he used was to associate the Pears brand with high culture and quality. Most famously, he used the painting Bubbles by John Everett Millais as an advertisement by adding a bar of Pears soap into the foreground. Barratt continued this theme with a series of adverts of well groomed middle-class children, associating Pears with domestic comfort and aspirations of high society.

Barratt introduced many of the crucial ideas that lie behind successful advertising and these were widely circulated in his day. He constantly stressed the importance of a strong and exclusive brand image for Pears and of emphasizing the product’s availability through saturation campaigns. He also understood the importance of constantly reevaluating the market for changing tastes and mores, stating in 1907 that “tastes change, fashions change, and the advertiser has to change with them. An idea that was effective a generation ago would fall flat, stale, and unprofitable if presented to the public today. Not that the idea of today is always better than the older idea, but it is different ‚Äď it hits the present taste.

United States[edit]

In the United States around 1840, Volney B. Palmer set up the first¬†advertising agency¬†in¬†Philadelphia. In 1842 Palmer bought large amounts of space in various newspapers at a discounted rate then resold the space at higher rates to advertisers. The actual ad ‚Äď the copy, layout, and artwork ‚Äď was still prepared by the company wishing to advertise; in effect, Palmer was a space broker. The situation changed in the late 19th century when the advertising agency of¬†N.W. Ayer & Son¬†was founded in New York. It planned, created, and executed complete advertising campaigns for its customers. It created a number of memorable slogans for firms such as¬†De Beers,¬†AT&T¬†and the¬†U.S. Army.[12]

By 1900 the advertising agency had become the focal point of creative planning, and advertising was firmly established as a profession. [13] At first, agencies were brokers for advertisement space in newspapers. N. W. Ayer & Son was the first full-service agency to assume responsibility for advertising content. N.W. Ayer opened in 1869, and was located in Philadelphia.[13]

The amount of space available in newspapers grew rapidly. The¬†Boston Transcript¬†published in 19,000 “agate lines” Of advertising in 1860, 87,000 in 1900, and 237,000 in 1918.
