MIRRORS OF MADEIRA, ROCK GARDEN OF THE ATLANTIC (O)National Geographic Society Natural Color Photograph by Wilhelm Tobien SHE CROWNS HER RADIANT COSTUME WITH A FUNNEL-SHAPED HAT Rarely seen nowadays is this feminine folk dress, flashing amid the green sugar cane of a terraced hillside. Along with it young Miss Madeira wears the family jewels, thick-soled goatskin boots, and by her side hangs a gourd for water or wine. The boy in brown homespun grips a man-sized climbing staff and keeps his ears warm with a woolen cap. The girl's ancient, horned hat, once worn by both sexes, has been abandoned by the men.
