Mexico's Canals and Leisure Life

One of the leisure spots found most attractive by Mexicans and foreign visitors alike were the Xochimilco canals. These festive scenes were recorded by the Mexican artist Miguel Covarrubias, giving us a glimpse into his circle of friends and the many picnickers who flocked to the area every Sunday.
