This is very frustrating for me. These photos were originally posted on the old "cityslide" Tampico site. When that company folded, the photos were all transfered to this "citymax" site. In doing so, they were all "minuaturized"! The names cannot be read or have totally disappeared! This was a very laborious effort to upload these photos the FIRST time. I will do my best to find the original photos again, reload them and list names.
