Summary
  • Espejo indirecto y bauĺ de antiguëdades, las viejas fotos de la Ciudad de Mex́ico nos convocan a reconocernos en el pasado, y a recordar la infinita mitologiá de lo que ya ha desaparecido. Lo ido y lo que maś o menos, pese a tantos cambios y parches, permanece. Una historia del advenimiento, triunfo y caid́a de numerosas costumbres, modos de vida, juego de valores sociales, objectos, mercanciás, instrumentos, edificios, vehićulos, modas, oficios, juguetes...Alarman a nuestra modernidad con la noticia de que seguimos siendo, en buena medida, los mismo de siempre, pero acaso con menor energiá e inocencia --la anj̃ea identidad nacional tambień se raya, como los acetatos de la prehistoria discograf́ica--; y nos llaman a la modestia al recordar cuańta innovacioń, cuańto presitigio, cuańta indumentaria, cuańta esperanza se ha digumindado. ¿Cuańto de lo que hoy somos esta,́ a su vez, sin que los advirtamos, desapareciendo? La ciudad lee su fortuna histoŕica en esta fotos como en los naipes de una gitana--Cover
  • Indirect mirror and trunk of antiques, the old photos of Mexico City summon us to recognize us in the past, and to remember the infinite mythology of what has already disappeared. The gone and what more or less, despite so many changes and patches, remains. A history of the advent, triumph and fall of many customs, ways of life, game of social values, objects, goods, instruments, buildings, vehicles, fashions, trades, toys ... Alarman our modernity with the news that we are still , to a large extent, the same as always, but perhaps with less energy and innocence - the old national identity is also scratched, like the acetates of prehistory - and call us to modesty by remembering how much innovation, how much prestige, how much clothing, how much hope has been digested. How much of what we are today is, in turn, without warning, disappearing? The city reads its historical fortune in this photos as in the cards of a gypsy woman--Translated cover from translate.google.com
