GREETINGS FROM BRASIL:
THE POSTCARD IN BRAZIL

A Portrait of Brazilian Cities
Carlos Cornejo e João Emilio Gerodetti

A view of Rua Formosa, one of Fortaleza’s most important streets, facing in the direction of the Passeio Público. This 1909 postcard carried the following message (handwritten on the photograph): "The streets of Fortaleza are all of this width, with few exceptions. The Via Férrea trolley that goes to the Baturité  Railway Station passes by here." Nowadays, countless commercial buildings have almost completely transformed this scene.
