Friday Funny ~ Found in Spain

Here are two old photos my husband found at a cousin's house in Spain.  It seems be of a group of hunters from the village of Villar de Ciervo in the province of Salamanca.  We've identified a few of the men in the photos, but the real treasure seems to be the fun these gentlemen were having.  I don't know the year, or the occasion.  The tall man on the right with the brimmed hat may be Manuel Martin Ventura (1880 - 1971), my husband's great grandfather.  He was born in Barcelona, and was a breeder of "toros bravos", bulls for the sport of bullfighting.  He was a farmer and grew grapes for wine in Villar de Ciervo.  It is too difficult to see the faces of any of the men in this photo.
