    This picture is linked with picture LC-B2-2579-8 which is dated March 6, 1912. Orozco troops are parading in front of Palacio Federal (Federal Palace) and Hotel Francia, through Calle Libertad. Across the street, to the left is located Palacio de Gobierno (Governor's Palace). See article in El Paso Herld of March 6th, 1912 (The Library of Congress, Cronicling America) "OROZCO TAKES ARMS AGAINST MADERO": It mentions Gen. Campa and Orozco arrival to Chihuahua.

    "El Gran Lente" was a photographic studio located right on the opposite corner to the right wing of the Palacio Federal", behind the camera. See in Texas A&M University Library, Wheelan Collecion of Mexican Revolution Photographs hdl.handle.net/1969.1/979 Where, if you zoom in, can read clearly EL GRAN LENTE---ESTUDIO FOTOGRÁFICO DE.---- and no so clearly ANTONIO SERRANO CHAVEZ, (who should be the author of this photo and the other photo called Orozco Enters Chihuahua in Bain's Collection) and ESTABLECIDO EN 1905 Dr. Roberto Duarte Plastic Surgeon

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/ryan_loc They are not linked in time because this picture most likely was taken on March 6, 1912, when Pascual Orozco Jr. took Chihuahua, and the one in Wheelan Collection depicts Francisco Villa watching the parade, most likely on 1914. Although they are linked in the location. I just wanted to show where the Gran Lente Studio (which name is scratched in this picture) was located. Dr. Roberto Duarte

    OK. I understand now. I will add a note about the Gran Lente Studio to the record the next time we update. Thanks for pointing it out. The library has a book about the studio published in 1992.
