Laninka from Canada has sent us a link to a beautiful Youtube video (actually a slide show) of old photos of Madeira Island from 1840 till 1960. It show mainly Funchal with its surroundings, landscapes, customs, how people lived and the types of public transport that were used during those years. Between the photos are also paintings and engravings of the 18th and 19th century.

Sit back … have a Poncha or Madeira Wine, if possible, and watch the rich historical video created by Gil Santos from Madeira. Duration 8 and a half minutes.
