Spectacular Vintage Photos Of Women From The Azores In Their Tradition Hooded Capes

The Azorean Hood (in Portuguese, ‘Capote e Capelo’) is a traditional local garment worn up until the 1930s. While the large cape covers a woman’s figure, it allows only a glimpse of her face. The true origin of this a little dark and mysterious garment isn’t known certain.
