Passport Portraits of Yesteryear no. 17

Continuing the series of passport photographs from my collection.
Peruse and wonder.

Juan Iglesis, a 45 year old Spaniard who had found refuge from the Civil War, is now living just over the border in Pyreneen France with his wife and teenage daughter. It is now November 1939 and once again he is in a country at war but this time he is a neutral foreigner. He needs a pass from the local police station to enable him to travel around the region. 

The purpose of his travelling is stated as 'commerce'; on his wife's pass the purpose is 'food and clothing'.
