Mexico: Interesting Photo from 1927
By Ana Luisa Cid

Mr. Jesus Martinez Castro sent me this photo taken in the year 1927,

It was given to him by Santiago Barrios, who told him that the image was taken at the entrance to Acatlan de Juarez in the state of Guerrero, near a cave containing Olmec remains.

Mr. Barrios visits the town of Chilapa frequently and found this photo (which is on display in a local restaurant)last December.

According to the restaurant's owner, the photo was taken by her grandfather and she said that 10 years later, in 1937, it was learned that an unknown object had landed near Preparatoria 26, adding that a burned surface area was even found.

The woman does not want her name disclosed. However, she authorized Santiago Barrios to take photos of it for subsequent enlargement and dissemination.

Jesus Martinez Castro and Santiago Barrios work at the Instituto de Investigación Científica of the Universidad Autónoma de Guerrero.

Note: A whitish area can be seen over the object. It is unknown if it is a spot on the photo or if it has an different origin. The Guerrero-based researchers dismiss the possibility of a photographic fraud.
