Documenting Jalpa de Cánovas, One Piece at a Time

At first, it's stunning. What is all this stuff? Room after room, table after table, there are piles that seem just stacked up: photographs, documents, typewriters, fishing gear, agricultural implements. What is going on? Have you accidently stepped into the house of a hoarder?

Then, it begins to make sense. Luis Cabrera had such pride in his town that he wanted to save everything that had any part of the history of the place. And by everything, he meant everything. Every scrap, every piece, every part, everything from paper to old "stuff" that - yet - tells a story. Best of all is the way the displays are arranged, to tell a story of a place and a people. It's a quirky museum, but it works very well.
