Annotation

Maria Dolores Rivero Hernández, known as Lolita Pluma, was different, uncommon for the time in which she lived: she used extravagant dresses, several colour ribbons on the hair, on her face there was an extra amount of carmine, large and dark lines around her eyes, and she was always surrounded by cats, maybe her only friends. For many years she wandered, extravagant and proud, on the Parque Santa Catalina, where she earned her life selling chewing gun and exposing for tourist pictures.
