“It is held by the Archivo General de la Nación Argentina. I found it on their Facebook page with this text: "Buenos Aires. Hombres bailando tango en el río. 1904 Documento Fotográfico. Inventario 22069" which translates as: "Buenos Aires. Men dancing tango in the river. 1904

In this Pinterest post from Johan Dijkink, for example: “In the picture: Hombres bailando tango en el río, 1904 (Archivo General de la Nación Argentina) in Buenos Aires,street musicians were common; they played tango music, and men danced with men to get better…” https://www.pinterest.com/JohanDijkink/men-and-tango/
