Photographer's Note

Third of the mini-series about colonial, old schools in Mindelo, So Vicente Island, Cape Verde. After the Liceu and the Escola Tcnica, I present today a Escola Primria (basic or primary school). This one is located near the Praa Nova, in the centre of Mindelo. It was constructed in 1945 (as we can read in the the plaque on the faade - see workshop, and the text below *). This school is still used nowadays. It has two entrances. I had difficulty to choose the main post; I decided for this which is the secondary entrance, on Rua Angola; here I prefer the colours and the light; in workshop I post the main faade, on the opposite street. The two photos were shot in different days and different hours. See also another POV of this secondary faade.
