These fascinating vintage photos show the culture, landmarks, streets, and everyday life of Mexicans in 1952. Journalist and Photographer Earl Leaf captured these photographs during his trip to Mexico.
Earl Leaf was born in Seattle in 1905. Before journalism and photography, he was a cowboy, sailor, prospector, dude rancher, actor, bookkeeper, and Salvation Army cadet. After the war, Earl decided that he would be both a photographer and a journalist and spent time in New York shooting the city and taking assignments to shoot artists like Martha.
