Gomes Gallery

A. C. Gomes established the very first photo studio in Zanzibar, in 1868. He had a brief partnership with Mr. J. B. Coutinho in the 1890s. His son P. F. Gomes continued the family business in Zanzibar for many years. P. F. Gomes died in 1932. Over those years both photo artists have left us with some marvelous images.
A bit of family history can been seen in the way the elder Gomes labeled his photos. His earliest work is marked Gomes and Company. Then in a few years we see the label Gomes and Son. Finally we see the label Gomes and Sons. Below is a rare image of A. C. Gomes and P. F. Gomes and the logos they used.
