With the arrival of the 200th anniversary of Argentina’s independence (The Bicentennial), I thought of putting a short list of our inventions.
It was created in 1928, when Hipólito Yrigoyen won the election. That year, Buenos Aires taxis felt the lack of passengers. Its leaders included José García Gálvez, Spanish naturalized Argentinian. Do not know who came up with the “collective taxi.” On September 24, 1928 on the corner began to offer a trip to Caballito cries for 20 cents (one-fifth of what would have cost in taxi).
EL DULCE DE LECHE
It is the most controversial. Not so rich, that does not question anyone. But the origin. Legend has it that a servant of Juan Manuel de Rosas warmed milk in a saucepan, when the General Lavalle arrived, to meet with Rosas. I was tired, he saw a bed and fell to rest. The employee went to the Rose room and was so frightened that he went to call the guards to check that the main enemy of Rosas was asleep in his bed … Meanwhile, in the brazier, boiled milk and boiled … the episode lasted quite time, so much so that the milk was reduced to a paste. To cover up the taste and the maid inadvertently added sugar and that is something similar to what is now known as dulce de leche. Several South American countries that are awarded this invention, but who can discuss this story?
LA GRAN WILLY
This is for a sports icon Argentine Guillermo Vilas. The Mar del Plata said that creating such a blow that identifies all over the world, was inspired by the Argentine polo player Juan Carlos Harriott. This, in an advertisement for Old Smuggler Scotch executed a backhanded (taco hit back), between the legs of his horse. The first time I ran it in 1974 Vilas, Club Obras Sanitarias de Buenos Aires, in an exhibition game against the French Wanar N’Godrella. Officially the coup did so in 1975, in Indianapolis, on clay, before the Spanish Manuel Orantes.
It is a product invented by Hugo Kogan in 1963, he was director of design company Aurora. His name was because he lit the flame at the touch of a button, triggering an electronic device causing a spark that lit the gas. In advertising, one of the most memorable of the era, the protagonist boasted of their quality and durability, promising security for 104 years.
