[Miscellaneous Sites in Mexico City, Mexico] [lantern slide]: Aztec calendar stone sculpture
Van Altena, Edward
1 lantern slide: b&w ; 3.25 x 4 in
Mexico, Mexico City, Mexico City
Discovered in 1790 during excavations in the main square in Mexico City, the stone is housed in the National Anthropology Museum there. It may have borne some similarity to a disc housed at Casa Alvarado (MX026), visited on the GCA tour, and hence the reason for this image's inclusion in the Mexico trip series.
Mount reads: "Edward Van Altena, 71-79 W. 45th St., N.Y.C."
Historic plate number: "49."
