Buenos Aires, Argentina - 1910 - Chapel of the Institute of Mary Help of Christians, run by the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians, in Yapeyú street, at that time a street with no name. It was the first shrine dedicated to Mary Help of Christians in America, and was built in 1883. It stands in front of the "Pio IX" Institute of the Salesians, in what is now identified as the neighborhood of Almagro, in Buenos Aires.

Here's how it looks today.
