I find this image interesting because it shows women same sex couples in public. I expect the identification of the location according to Tangology is accurate, although I have seen the same image confidently identified as the Avenida de Mayo in Buenos Aires. Are they dancing tango? I don’t think we can really say, but it is notable that this image crops up on a great many contemporary [2016] tango websites.

What do you belive the copyright status of this image to be?
Ray Batchelor believes: “The image is out of copyright.”
