This seems to be a sale negotiation taking place for a blanket which has a traditional Mexican pattern. I think that many of the b&w negatives I recently acquired were taken in Mexico and this one certainly seems to originate from that country. I’m not sure of the date, but based on other pictures in the set I think it is probably around 1940.
