Advertised as part of the "Mexican International R. R. Series" (Edison films catalog): The interesting views catalogued below were photographed by our artists, while enjoying the special privileges extended to Mr. Edison's party.

The pictures show what a quaint and wonderful foreign country lies at the very gateway of our southern frontier (p. 39).
