Reproduction of a black-and white-photograph of a narrow street in the town of Taxco, an important rest stop between Mexico City and Acapulco known for the quality of silver craftsmanship. People in local dress walk up and down the street. Two mules carrying loads are included in the photograph. On the left there is a large stone building and a store front in this building bears a sign stating (translated) "we are closing out / prices reduced". Three children face the camera on the steps to the entrance to this store. One of 11 photographic postcard scenes of Taxco, Guerrero.
