The Portuguese people who most often photographed Queen Isabella II - Sociedade
In 1957, the British cash register company National Cash Register Co. asked Correa dos Santos to photograph the English monarch’s carriage as it passed the door of the Rua Augusta branch in Lisbon. “At the time, I couldn’t, so I always went with a coach to Parque Eduardo VII,” says the photographer, who was lucky enough to “take a farewell photo” in the middle of Avenida da Liberdade. “Will that make her wave to me?”

After the service was delivered, he followed this photograph to the company’s headquarters in London, who asked for it – “because it was the most beautiful visit” to Portugal – in 24x30cm to give to the Queen. “I saw her again when I drove to San Carlos at night, in the car with her husband, the night that Salazar was there, whom I didn’t photograph,” explains who received 25 escudos for the photo. This was done by Ismael Ferreira and, according to Correa, it was because at some point “the Queen or the President of the Council wanted to record both” and there was only the photographer “O Seculo” who took the picture that Mundo ran.


At that time, other branches of the English company wanted to get a photo of the monarch’s wave.Correa photographed Isabella II again in 1985 (for the Popular Diary), with Mario Soares at the entrance to the Palace of Sintra and another time, “I don’t know where anymore”, with Ramalho Eanes, “everything smiling, which was not accepted in height.” For his 2015 book From the 50s to the Present, which collects the most iconic images of his career, he asked Isabella II to comment on a photograph of a wave on Avenida da Liberdade. “I was told at Buckingham Palace that the Queen did not comment on state visits (which was a misunderstanding as the comment was on an image) but wished the book well.”

“You are the future,” President Marcelo Rebelo de Souza told a three-year-old girl dressed in traditional Portuguese clothing who came out to greet him on the podium where he spoke at Artesia Portuguese Salon. The city, located on the outskirts of Los Angeles, has not hosted the President of the Portuguese Republic since 1989. This weekend, he did it with pomp and the setting of an ornate Portuguese-American community bursting with pride.

“We have never lost the honor and responsibility of being representatives of this beautiful flag,” said Jimmy Enes, a member of Artesia DES, a Portuguese descendant, in a welcoming speech delivered in perfect Portuguese. “When we are asked who we are, we always answer”i am portuguese“and not”Portuguese-American“or ‘Portuguese American’,” he said. “That’s why we’re trying step by step to protect our heritage on the outskirts of Los Angeles, one of the greatest cities in the world.”
