His excellency was the colonie’s guest from July to September.

Though incomplete and deficient as an exhibit of a very impressive and memorable journey, this book simply stands as a record of flitting images. Some news taken during his excellency General Carmona’s visit to the Union of South Africa are also here displayed, the warm greeting given at the Portuguese Chief of State showing the excellent relations of friendship and mibourghliness [sic] which unite the two countries”. Oscar Carmona (1869 – 1951) was president of Portugal from 1926 to 1951. These volumes contain extraordinary images of old warships, the Portuguese dictator surrounded by saluting admirers in crisp uniforms, huge parades, scenes and crowds. An impressive collection of photographic images.
