Marilia as seen by Klaus Jürgen E.K.Mahrenholz, photographer

Sao Paulo photographer Klaus Jürgen E.K. Mahrenholz visited Marilia circa 1955 and took a lot of shots of the young city. Now, Klaus has got a page on Facebook where he posts most of his stuff. Unfortunately, most of his material has deteriorated but some of them photos are still fairly good. 



São Bento's snapshot has deteriorated badly, but one can still see how it looked like in 1955.

Baile do Algodão - 15 November 1952.

Marilia's high-society decided to throw a big party on 15 November 1952, after the farmers of the region had a bumper cotton crop. They called it the Cotton Ball and it was organized by the local Commercial Association to collect funds in favour of the Professional School for Women.

The President of the Brazilian Labour Party (PTB), Mr. João Goulart patronized the event throught the presence of Carmelia Alves, Francisco Carlos and Marion, from the cast of Radio Nacional from Rio de Janeiro and the dancer Celia de Souza Franco

Miss Shirley de Barros Baptista won the Cotton Queen Competition and Miss Yoshiko Senga was the runner up. Among those who worked hard for the event are the board of directors of the School for Women plus Mrs Ophelia Ribeiro, her husband Dr. Simão de Andrade Ribeiro and Neusa de Carvalho, who works as a teacher at the School.

Santo Antonio's activities in the 1950s

Altar boys at Saint Anthony's. The Black young man in the back-row is Ramiro Ribeiro, a relative of my grandmother Albina Rosa de Jesus. Actually, Ramilo's mother Joana married Joaquim Pavão, my grandmother's brother. 
Ramiro Ribeiro as an altar-boy at Santo Antonio circa 1957; some some quirk reason Rarmiro was known by us as Ramilo, spelt with an L instead of R...

Corbi Braga writes at FB: fui dos primeiros príncepes da Paroquia de Santo Antonio. Nós nos vestíamos de príncepes e levávamos uma placa com alguma frase que não me lembro, e em cada lado, uma menina segurando uma fita.
