1958 Zocalo pic

Check out this classic photo of the Zocalo. It looks like a political rally and Lopez Mateos is the candidate.

Pretty cool....It must have been really nice to visit there before it got too populated.

My Grandparents frequented Acapulco in the late 60's and 70's, but nobody seems to know who's in posession of their pictures....I really should put some effort into finding them.

That's a sweet pic! I was born in '57 so I don't know but, is that a Ford driving through the intersection? Isn't that the period in time where you could drive any car you wanted as long as it was an American car?

Hola Camaroguy! That's a 57 Ford Fairlane 500 (had one). Drew's shots are always great. Saw some of my future GFs in the shot (lol). Wait 'til I show up at the Zocalo with a 55 Studebaker :)
