Soldiers from the Portuguese colonial army...Mozambique

Date picture taken
14 Jun 1960


In fact it's (was) the Governor's Office - the Palácio da Praia Grande. The soldier (sentinel) was indeed from Mozambique. Those soldiers were called "landins" and they were very brave.
Now the palace has changed a bit: The colors are slightly different; there's a new jut over the 1st floor balcony; a new fence is separating the palace from the sidewalk; those lamps have disappeared, etc.
It was nice viewing the palace as it was back then. A great and rare photo! Thanks!
