Today's photo shows a group of vaqueros (Mexican cowboys) in Santa Ana in the 1880s. The photo comes from the Santa Ana Public Library, but I don't have any additional information. Their fancy-shmancy attire and the wagon behind them suggest they might be part of a parade. But which parade? (The famous Parade of Products launched around 1906.) In any case, it's a pretty great (if small) image and I wanted to share. If you know more about it, please leave a note in the comments.
