    Indias Toba, Tabacal (Jujuy), Argentina

    Tow Toba women at El Tabacal, Jujuy Province.  The Toba are also know as Kom people. They are having a harsh time from 1880. Tabacal is now known as Hipólito Yrigoyen, there was a factory there, the Toba were workers at the complex.

    I haven’t found reliable references for the picture or the postcard, some saying the was printed by R. Rosauer. Maybe is from the fisrt third of the 20th century.
