23 Incredible Vintage Photos Of Mexico

It’s time to take a trip back in time with these vintage photos of Mexico.

As someone who loves old photos - and Mexico - it seemed only logical that I throw a post like this together.

So, I went about scouring the Internet and dug up some of my favorites.

A few I’ve included because they’re not too different from modern-day Mexico (like first the photo of the prostitutes of La Merced in Mexico City…that’s still a red light district today), some I’ve included because they look nothing like modern day Mexico (like the photos of the northern border cities) and some I’ve included because I just like the look of the photo.

Unfortunately, not many of these photos come with context, so I can’t provide much.

I have, however, included a link and and source for each photo, so if you want to see more great old photos of Mexico, some of the links will take you to albums.

Enjoy.
