Pomona in the DF


Four months after my own visit to Mexico City (or Distrito Federal, as it’s known), reader Elizabeth Casian went there herself. And while there, the Pomona resident found not one but two Pomonas. Heck, i didn’t even find one.

The first was a street sign (at night, where it didn’t photograph well), and the other was this stained glass image of the Goddess Pomona in the castle in Chapultepec Park, finished in 1865. The name confirms it, even though it’s facing outward: “Pomone.”

Two Pomonas while on vacation? Casian must have felt right at home.
