Do you have any photos of the Spanish building the Spaniards left behind?
You probably don’t mean photos, since photography was invented a bit later, but images.

We don’t need to go far, Wikipedia has a couple:

Puerto Soledad - Wikipedia

The date is 1769, some years after the Spanish establishment there.

Or in the Spanish Wikipedia:

Puerto Soledad - Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre

The date is 1829, some 18 years after the Spanish left the islands.

EDIT: problems with the links resolved.

The inhabitant in Falklands were

25 Gauchos and 5 Indians, 2 Dutch Families, 2 or 3 Englishmen, a German family, the remainder were Spaniards and Portuguese, pretending to follow some trade, but doing little or nothing. The Gauchos he said were Good Ayreans and their Foreman to Frenchman.

I add Gauchos were Spaniards too....

Only Mr Royal have the courage to say.. Spaniards didn´t rule Malvinas...:lol::lol: and not Texas nor California... Spaniards were only in Tenochtitlan as it was said the other day by a new member of the forum....

Every poin in Falklands/Malvinas have a Spanish and English name...

And dear Mr Royal...

Sorry because History was not a Hollywood script.. but not Errol Flynn beat Spaniards in Malvinas.... Spanish garrison was evacuated to fight in mainland... against others Spanish rebels.
