     Santa Casa de Misericórdia

    1912

    M Pastinha's manuscripts, 1960: «[..] I taught on Sta Izabel street from 1910 to 1912, when I abandoned capoeira [..]»

    * We know that M Aberrê also started working there as a mason from 23rd February 1939. Maybe they worked together for some time.
