PostTrotsky House, Coyoacan: Photos by Cornelia Lohs (Patrick Mears, Germany, 01/13/18 1:10 pm)
These are my wife Cornelia Loh's photographs from our visit a few years back to the Trotsky house in Coyoacán, outside Mexico City.
JE comments: Connie's outstanding photos really bring back my three or four visits to the house. As I wrote earlier on WAIS, during my first visit in 1984 the house was still a private residence. You had to knock on the door and ask for a tour.
The captions are my own--I hope I've correctly labeled the writing desk where Trotsky received the fatal axe blow from Ramon Mercader. Mercader's last words, allegedly, were "I know he's waiting for me on the other side."
