Axis sailors go to Mexican farms in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico: Sailors from the German and Italian ships that were confiscated by the Mexican government have been sent to farm lands in the state of Jalisco. They will be given the opportunity to earn their living there. More than four hundred seamen were brought to Guadalajara on a special train, then were taken to the farm lands by truck. In this picture, a truckload of German sailors starts for the farms. Up until the present, the German and Italian governments have been paying approximately 100,000 pesos per month for the support of the sailors, June 1941.

Ferrotyped prints are processed in such a way that they are shiny. The print has a sensitive surface, usually thinner, because it was put through a press while still wet.
Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
