Carte de Visite
João L. Carreira - Photographer
Benguella, Portuguese West Africa

This carte de visite depicts Sergento João Pereira of the Portuguese colonial in tropical service dress. The image was taken in
1904 in Benguella, Portuguese West Africa - present day Angola. This remarkable image of a noncommissioned officer of
from Europe's first and oldest colonial power - an often overlooked and poorly represented subject matter - was kindly
provided by Mário G. of Portugal.
