TikTok Shows How Mexico City Has Changed Since 1957 | Digital Trends Spanish

In the different social networks there are several accounts that rescue old photographs of public places and compare them with current images, as a way of witnessing the passage of time in these places.

This has also happened in Mexico City. A young photographer has used his TikTok account to display an old roll of photographs from 1957 that shows some of the most symbolic buildings in the Mexican capital.

It is about David Muñiz who, taking these records as a reference, has climbed to the Latin American Tower in the center of the city to recreate the images and see how the city has evolved.

The 23-year-old photographer shared a video on his TikTok profile of just over a minute that has quickly gone viral on the platform.

In the publication appears the Monument to the Revolution, which Muñiz has compared through the two images: the one from 1957 and the one he captured with his camera. Thus, you can see how modern buildings obstruct the view of this monument for someone who observes from the viewpoint of the Latin American Tower.

The video also shows the Palacio de Bellas Artes and the Alameda Central, where the disappearance of the exterior parking lot outside the enclosure is observed.

Finally, the publication shows the obvious changes that some streets and avenues such as the Eje Central and Madero have had, whose buildings present important modifications, especially as a result of the earthquake that hit Mexico in 1985.

The TikTok video has already accumulated more than 400 thousand views and 91 thousand likes.
