From inventory: "Left to right: Crecencio Vigil and Meliton Barela were hired by CF&I as marshals of the Cokedale mine in southern Colorado. They guarded the coal mine and coke ovens against activity by disgruntled miners. Meliton is a younger brother of Casimiro Barela, Colorado's "Perpetual Senator" of Las Animas County. Notice the dugout structure with the plate of fruit on the roof, the cooking pots at the lower right, and a mirror and towel. Crecencio wears a Colt 45 Model 1871.
