Description: Photograph of a large crowd in front of the Juarez City Council office building. "Ayuntamiento de la Ciudad" translates to City Council in English. "Jefatura Politica" translates to Political Leadership. A note on the back of the photograph states that this is a photo of the Juarez Mayor's Office and that the photo was taken in May of 1911, the time frame when the Battle of Juarez occurred and revolutionary forces took over the city. It is unknown if the photo was taken before or after the battle, however, the crowd is composed of rebel forces and local citizenry. A carriage is stopped in front of the building. Next to the City Council building is El Sauz, a local meat market.
