Summary:
A color photograph (photomechanical reproduction?) taken in the main walkway at Olvera Street. At the far left sits a man with a sombrero that reads "Mexico"; he plays a harp. Directly in front of him are two small children sitting: the boy wears a charro outfit and the girl a typical folk costume. Two slightly older kids wear identical costumes and dance. Next to them are two adults in similar folk costume, standing next to wares for sale.
