Description:
The title, "Quemazon de la Valenciana y Peste en el Campo" means "Burning of the Valenciana and Plague in the Countryside". There are two images, both in black and white without borders. The top image is of two rail cars that appear to have collided, one has a cross atop and might be a funeral procession. Between the cars is a casket that has fallen onto the tracks and broken, exposing the man laying inside. The bottom image is of a man about to swing a bat onto a pile of dead people. There is a man and a woman on either side of him watching, and beyond the pile of people is a ghost that's meant to represent the plague.
