Photo by George R.King SCENE IN SAN BLAS, MEXICO Mexico still remains, in some respects, as primitive as when Cortez first landed on her shores. The picture shows how liquids are still transported today in the great earthenware vessels which have been used from time immemorial. Note thesandals used by the rider of the donkey on the right. San Blas, despite its open and exposed roadstead and its unhealthy climate, hasaconsiderable trade-lumber, silver ore, and copper being exported in large quantities.
