Recife Carnival of 1947

Continuing with the Carnival theme, I found an album of photos by the late French photographer Pierre Verger which show Recife’s Carnival in 1947. You’ll recognize several of the photos as coming from my post on Frevo in Black and White (which I randomly found on various sites, without knowing who the photographer was). Below, you’ll be able to see  a collection of 38 pictures (click for larger size). Enjoy!
