The album, which contains 77 photographs and 20 pencil tracings, was compiled by Francis Clare Ford during his first post to Buenos Aires in 1866. Included among the photographs are three joined panoramas of the city (two four-part panoramas and one three-part panorama); views of the city's monuments and buildings; scenic views of the surrounding pampas and genre scenes depicting life on the pampas; and portraits of gauchos and indigenous peoples. Gaucho life is also represented by three compositions of gaucho gear and trappings. Indigenous groups represented include Patagonians, Tehuelche and Toba Amerindians. Some of the sitters are known, including the Tehuelche chief, Casimiro Biguá, his son, Sam Slick, and daughter, Juanita Biguá; as well as Utrac, son of the Patagonian chief Inacayal. Images of flora and fauna include a photograph of the three guanachos Ford sent to Lord Clarendon in 1866, and views of ombú trees (phytolacca dioica), enormous evergreens native to the pampa. Four small photographs were taking at the Estancia Collins in Uruguay during an 1866 hunting trip
