Philippeville massacre - This Day in History: Jul 3, 1962: The Algerian War of Independence against the French ends.

A cantinière was a civilian woman attached to the French Army on an official basis, who sold food and liquor to the soldiers above and beyond what they received as rations. She had to be married to a soldier of the regiment, and received no pay, living off her earnings instead. This cantinière was attached to a zouave regiment (zouaves were originally Algerian troops), and therefore wears baggy trousers. Photo by Roger Fenton.
