DescriptionA group of men and horses stand on Gold Avenue, between First and Second Streets, in Albuquerque in front of the New Mexico Book and News Company. A flag hangs over the entrance to the store and reads "Books". One person is seated on a horse, while the rest of the people stand beside the horses or on the wooden sidewalk near the businesses.
