The Hotel Guibert, La Paz, where Biggles and Algy stayed when visiting Wilks in Bolivia (Flies Again). The image is probably from 1903, so it may have been updated slightly by the time they visited.

An excellent find, Kismet. It's nice to have at least an idea of what it should vaguely look like.

Brilliant. I do like to see images of real places they stayed, even better if it's around the same time.

Here's one of La Paz, intriguingly titled '1930 Press Photo Aerial view of La Paz Bolivia during revolution'.
