Their design is similar to the cartones issued in San Luis Potosí. The title ‘Junta de Administración Municipal’ dates these notes to the period when the Carrancista governor, José Siurob (governor from 11 May 1915 to end of December 1916), reorganised the state’s administration, establishing Juntas de Administración Civil in all the municipalities and smaller entities. The Junta de Administración Civil in Ciudad González was led by Mayor Bulmaro E. Covarrubias.
