Vintage photos show Latin America's deadliest war

They appear little more than a bunch of old black-and-white photos the size of an A4 sheet of paper, with poorly defined images of armed men, battlefields and lifeless bodies.

But this collection of pictures has immense historic value.

They are the first ever photographs documenting a war in Latin America.

They show the War of the Triple Alliance, a conflict which raged from 1865 to 1870 and which pitched Paraguay against Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay.
