“Pictures and memories of the municipality of Machico”
As from January 18th, at the Atlanticulture Center Exhibition Room – Fórum Machico, the Regional Archives and Public Library of Madeira (ABM) presents a photographic exhibition.
A great number of antique and vintage photographs of the municipality of Machico, taken between the remote 1860s, 1870s and 20th century, were selected from the photographic collections of the Regional Archives of Madeira and of the Madeira Photography Museum – Atelier Vicente’s.
Aspects of the centuries-old heritage of the five parishes of Machico are shown here, as well as photographs of two important events of the history of Machico: the last efforts of the Rebellion of Madeira in 1931 and the fatal flood that devastated the municipality in 1956.
