Chetumal in Othón P. Blanco, Quintana Roo, Mexico — The Yucatan Peninsula (The Southeast)
Juventino Rosas Theater
Paseo de los Héroes
Así lucía el primer tramo de la avenida de Los Héroes, antes de 1960. Ahí se estableció el primer sitio de automóviles de alquiler, y lo más notorio de la imagen viene a ser la desaparición del viejo Palacio de Gobierno y el cine Juventino Rosas. Por otra parte, los vehículos de motor, eran no más de medio centenar mientras que la mayoría de los ciudadanos utilizaba la bicicleta como medio de transporte.
