One postcard shows a procession of soldiers on horseback and carriage surrounded by spectators as they traverse "Texas Street between Mesa and Stanton". Another postcard depicts four professionally and artistically shot photos in a collage of the barren terrain of El Paso; one showing a mesa in the background from the perspective of a horseback rider with the back of a horse's head in the foreground, another showing a farmstead with chickens and mules, with the other two showcasing the hard and desolate nature of the region.

The last postcard in the series has a young local atop a donkey hurling a water barrel behind, official caption states "Mexican Water Hauler. Tex-Mex Border."
