Mexican Revolution

I came across this site full of photos and manuscripts from Mexico in days gone by via another Mexico blog. I don’t remember which one now, or I’d give him or her the credit. It’s a collection of old Mexico photos, including quite a set from the Mexican Revolution. They have a decent amount of info for each shot too, so any Mexican history buffs would appreciate the site I suspect. For myself, it’s inspiration to create a few more fake old photos for my Once Upon A Time set on Flickr. The photos below are courtesy of Southern Methodist University, Central University Libraries and DeGolyer Library.Photos

  • Hi, Gary. Enjoy your blog. The blog where you saw this was probably Mexico Bob’s. I am backtracking today and just finished reading his and went to SMU to look right before I came here. I am always finding neat stuff and forgetting where I got it. Actually, that is how I got to your blog the first time, no idea where from- maybe from Bob’s also.

  • That’s an amazing collection of photos. Living in Cozumel, where building design is much more contemporary, it’s nice to see some nice colonial-type architecture from another era. Thank you for sharing.


    • I have to say the ones with recognizable architecture still standing today do it for me. Tomorrow I’ll be in the Zocalo, and with just a little imagination, I can recreate the scene in my head.
