Photo shows Mexican officials, charros and senoritas on and about a pedestal for a statue of Cuauhtémoc, last of the Aztec emperors, at the Tijuana international gate when it was dedicated a few days ago. At the time, the gay throng was marked for death and a bomb was planted under the masonry, according to Mexican investigators. But the bomb exploded one day late. The arrow points out Governor Carlos Tejada of Lower California. Photo dated: September 30, 1931.
