The authorities nab villainous Ignacio Parra
Broadside shows a side-view, facing right of outlaw Ignacio Parra on horseback. The verse conveys the story Ignacio Parra who robbed and killed many in the state of Durango. He, along with his gang of bandits, terrorized the area for nine years. In the end, Don Octaviano Merás (or Meráz) brought him to justice by killing him. Two other verses appear on the verso: "The bird salesman" and "The promise."
