AAA Editor Notes
José Guadalupe Posada Museum is about 6 blks. s. of Plaza de la Patria on Plaza Encino, next to Encino Church (Templo del Encino). It houses a fascinating collection of works by Posada, a 19th-century Mexican engraver and cartoonist who was another native son. He was best known for his calaveras, skeletal-like figures that satirized events leading up to the Mexican Revolution of 1910. These humorous political scenarios influenced public opinion in their day.
