Taken in the City of Mexico, on the Plaza de la Constitucion, or the Plaza Mayor. The Zocola Gardens of the Cathedral (Church of the Asuncion de Maria Santissima) form the background, while a number of pack-mules, street cars, vehicles and pedestrians pass in the foreground, all typical view of this wonderful city.
