description

The notation on the back of the image says: " Across the Rio Grande River from Smelter 1911" - Inside the image a slip of paper says: '"Casa of Adobe" Cuartel General de Francisco I. Madero' (Translation: ""House of Adobe" Headquarters of Francisco I. Madero"')
Consequently, the picture shows the headquarters of Francisco I. Madero, one of the rebel leaders in the Mexican Revolution. He became president of Mexico in 1911 but was assassinated two years later. Four men are sitting down against the wall under a window - three of them with rifles; the other with his hat on his knee. There's another man standing with his rifle to his side. On the right of the image a man is sitting on a ladder. All the men are unknown.
