Description

These four examples of broadsides (fliers sold for a few pennies) from Mexico (Mexico City, c. 1888-1920) are typical of their genre. They present poems and songs (sometime ballads known as corridos) about love -- a lover's dance, love of one's mother, secret love -- with passion and a bit of humor.
