A rare photo emerged of General Pancho Villa’s daughter, Alicia Villa, courtesy of Historic Chicago. A great jinete like her father, she arrived to Chicago in April 1937 to join the Hagenbeck-Wallace Circus. She’s pictured petting “Mickey” with Chicago police officer Fred Knapp at the Dearborn station.
