The Ponte do Carmo, spanning the Rio Vermelho, and the old Rua do Carmo, present-day Rua Couto de Magalhães, around 1910. At left, we see the Hospital de Caridade São Pedro de Alcântara and the Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Carmo, whose façade is topped by a cross. Construction of the church was completed in 1786.
