Mexico’s history in pictures

Puebla [Notimex] – A collection of photographs portraying the history of Mexico will be exhibited at the Puebla Regional Museum.

The photos date from between 1845 and 1960.

The exhibition shows the changes that Mexican society has been through, from the romantic feel of the 21st century, to the hectic life at the beginning of the 20th century.

Many photographs show key figures in Mexico’s history, such as revolutionary leaders and politicians.  Others show everyday life, architecture and landscape.

The exhibition is only a fraction of the more than 900,000 images in the National Photography Archive (Fototeca).
