Seven framed, black and white lithograph prints, each about 8 x 10 inches, six of which are titled in Spanish "Costumbres Andaluzas" (Customs of Andalusia). Each print features a scene related to the Andalusian region of southern Spain and have subtitles of Picador (a bullfighter on horseback who stabs the bull to weaken it), Matador (the bullfighter who kills the bull), Gitanas Vendiendo Bunuelos (Gypsies Selling Fritters), El Columpio (The Swing), Duelo de Jitanos (Duel of the Gypsies), Feria del Rocio (lit. Fair of the Dew, an annual pilgrimage to the Hermitage of El Rocio), and Compra del Ganado (Cattle Buying). The seventh in the set shows a woman and a man, subtitled "Amparo Alvarez, La Campanera" (lit. the bell ringer) and "Cuchares, Primer Espada" (lit. best sword). These two were likely famous personalities in Andalusia. The lithographer is credited in the lower left or right corner with "Lit. C. Santigosa, Seville" except on the seventh print. He is known to have produced an 1840 album of 22 lithographs called "Album Sevillano" from which these prints may have come. Seville is the capital of Andalusia. These prints are conceivably from that period, and some have water stains along their edges. Frames are simple wood frames that could use some glue or replacement.
