Color Photographs of the Daily Life in Mexico during the 1950s

These slides and photographs are from one of Vieilles Annonces' photo collections. They were dusty, darkened, bent, underexposed and were destined to be trash. Through the help of Photoshop, they can be displayed once again.

Vieilles likes rescuing old slides from the dustbins and enhancing with Photoshop. And here are her some stuffs that show the daily life of Mexico in the 1950s.
