Brazil circa 1870s.

We picked up these gorgeous cartes de visite of Brazilian tipos yesterday.

They were created by two photo studios: “Companie Fotografica Coquimbo” and “Arcenio Borges Photographo” in Rio de Janeiro around the 1870s.

The only other photograph from “Companie Fotografica Coquimbo” we’ve found is at the New York Public Library.

Tell us what you think about these vintage photos in the comments section below and share them with all your Brazilian friends.

This last photograph came with the rest of the group but we believe, based on the clothing and features, that it was taken in Bolivia.
