[A small Conjunto band in the Montopolis Neighborhood]

Description:

Photograph of three male Conjunto musicians taking a break, as they visit with an audience of six other people, possibly Latinos. One man has an electric amplifier for his acoustic guitar, and two of the three are holding Schlitz beer cans. The audience includes a young woman standing in the doorway, a mature woman sitting on a wooden chair with a young girl on her lap, and a mature man facing the group. The group appears to be in front of a pre-fabricated building.
