40 Amazing Color Photographs That Capture Everyday Life in Mexico During the 1950s

The word "Mexico" is derived from Mexica (pronounced "Me-shee-ka"), the name for the indigenous group that settled in central Mexico in the early fourteenth century and is best known as the Aztecs.

Between 1940 and 1980, Mexico remained a poor country but experienced substantial economic growth that some historians call the "Mexican miracle". Here, we present an amazing gallery of 40 cool images, submited by Keith Bough. These photographs were taken by Bough's grandfather back in the 50's in Mexico.
