“Histoire de Portugal”, Auguste Saint- Prosper

After some weeks absence and a few rude intermitions ago, I'm back. Today just a small link more on Portuguese costume..
Here are a few images on copper plates about Portuguese people around the mid 19th century (you can clearly see that it is from the Romantic period) found in that place called the world wide web. I so whish that people would add the full references on the images they post...
