The port, known as Puerto Madero, had by 1907 become insufficient to meet growing maritime traffic. Puerto Madero, and its complementary Catalinas docks, could handle a maximum of 30,000 tons of cereals daily (cereals were the leading export of Argentina, and the foreign exchange these shipments earned were key to the mercantile model of the time).

Extensive improvements have been carried out at the port, and the Royal Mail Steam Packet Company's steamers, instead of landing passengers at La Plata, which necessitated a railway journey to the capital, now proceed to the Madero Docks at Buenos Aires. The city itself might be termed, without much exaggeration, the Paris of the Southern Hemisphere, and in the arrangement of its streets there is, indeed, more than a passing resemblance between the two.
