I'm now famous in Argentina, South America !

Its not every day that you get to see your name in print on the other side of the planet. Last weekend on Sunday 4th September an article was printed in the Argentinian newspaper "La Gaceta". La Gaceta is a daily newspaper (established in 1912) with a circulation of 46,000 copies.
The news article is about some fountains in Tucumán which I have helped research for them as they were made in Derby by Andrew Handyside & Co and shipped all the way to Argentina in 1872.
Andrew Handyside made Friar Gate bridge and thousands of other items all over the world but us Derbians seem to have completely forgotten this company but I am trying to rectify this by researching and promoting all that they have done using my Andrew Handyside blog and a series of Articles and maybe a book.

To see an English Translated version of this article click : Article in La Gaceta Newspaper.
Here is a screen grab from the web version of the article (in Spanish):

There will be another article printed soon about some other Handyside stuff in South America.
