Spanish Cantinieres

I had an earlier entry, "Joy of the Regiment" about Spanish Cantinieres in Spain's African Colony.

Here are some earlier Spanish Cantinieres...."CANTINERA"

These images are from the  19th Century.The image below is from 1860 of a Cantinera in Africa

I only found the image but nothing on the unit but this Cantinera was stationed in Cuba.

The images below are from the Third Carlist War

Spanish Folk groups today have whole companies of Cantineras uniformed in this tradition.

"María Peironcely, una cantinera de TECNUN" at the University of Navarre (cooking school?)

"Estatua a La Cantinera en Eskoleta."

I have to find out more about this tradition.
