Photograph article dated October 14, 1961 partially reads, "'With the permission of the authorities and if the weather permits, six bulls especially selected for this great event will be fought in Spanish style,' said the program. Whistles and shouts cascaded down the fast-filling bull ring. Swigs of beer and wine only sharpened the thirst of the foot-stomping crowd (predominatly [sic] from the States for the day's action). It was nearing 4 p.m. on a searing Sunday afternoon in Tijuana... bull fight time... the pomp of Pamploma [sic] in miniature just five minutes across the Mexican border." An unidentified Matador executes pass on 'el toro'.
