A lot of the restaurants here in La Crucecita feature old sepia prints of Mexico and Mexican heros. They are a delight to look at, showing old town squares, streets, dance hall girls and war heroes.
But one I find very disturbing. It was taken in 1909 so must have had something to do with the revolution. The event took place in Mexico City. I tried to do research on the names of three gentlemen pictured but was unable to find a single thing about this incident or who they were.
I'll never understand how people can do this sort of thing. I would not have wanted to be one of the soldiers....nor one of three victims. Notice how two of them defiantly stare down their executioners.
I'm just glad there was no after picture to go along with this one.
