Description: Postcard of a young boy and girl dressed in traditional Mexican costumes. The children are standing on a woven rug with a traditional Mexican motif woven into it; two more hang side by side behind them. The boy, who is standing on the left-hand side of the image and facing the girl on the right, is wearing shiny black shoes, a billowy white shirt, and fitted black pants with a scroll design piped up each leg. He is also wearing a wide satin sash, a fitted vest that is decorated with traditional motifs, a scarf around his neck, and a wide brimmed hat. The girl is wearing a full high-waist skirt that has sparkly designs sewn onto it, a small white shirt with a motif design on the front, and a scarf that forms a sash and a vest. The girl is also wearing a flower headband in her hair, which is bobbed. Along with postcard stamps, there is a handwritten note on the back of the image.
