An extensive image archive has been collected on this blog, taken mainly from magazines. Comparing pre-New State images of women with the Mocidade Portuguesa Feminina model in magazines contrasts the cosmopolitan "modern girl" with a more traditional view of female roles.

‘Ilustração Portuguesa’ (‘Portuguese Illustration’) was a magazine from the beginning of the last century. In this blog I will show my collection of old magazines, interspersing two page of ‘Ilustração Portuguesa’ with other images.
