[Mexican Prisoners Awaiting Sentence]

Description: Postcard image of several Mexican Insurrecto prisoners being guarded in a jailhouse somewhere in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. There are at least three men standing behind the jail bars of this jailhouse. One Mexican Soldier is sitting outside of the jailhouse and he is guarding the prisoners. An unknown woman is visiting with one of the prisoners. There is no accompanying information about the identities for any of the people in this image. The Mexican Soldier is wearing a Mexican Army style Uniform; so it is logical to conclude that the men behind the prison bars are either Mexican Insurrectos and most likely captured members from Pancho Villa's band of insurgents or Mexican spies on the side of Pancho Villa. The Mexican Army guard is wearing a bullet ammo bandolier with 5 round ammo clips.
