Tinted photo depicting men and women in "traditional" Spanish costume riding through the courthouse grounds on horses. Two women are at the front of the crowd wearing white lace dresses and behind them is a group of men intended to be Spanish gentlemen, but look a bit like zoot-suiters or "Zorro" types. There are three copies of the card.
