Rua Amazonas in the 1950s

Norma Pavarin posted some photos of herself and her siblings taken during her childhood in the 1950s at her house on Rua Amazonas, 604.

At Facebook she wrote: E por falar em reminiscencias... Rua Amazonas, 604. Ao lado, um pedacinho da casa de madeira, era a fabrica de sabão São Paulo, do sr. Antonio 'Saboeiro'.

By 1991, I used to visit Marilia pretty regularly. The railway line was still working. I made a point of always carrying my Nikkon camera and every time the train coming East-West or West-East stopped at Marilia's station I would go out in search of a photo opportunity. This is one of those times... this particular train came from the West and was bound for São Paulo... when I saw those kids so eager to be photographed I didn' think twice...
