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...

Boys dressed in style to represent the princes of the Church throughout the ages... padre Cesar Luzio Junior's in the back; dona Hilda Grassi is next to the priest plus dona Marta, wearing dark glasses and Amelia Alicatte.

SANTA CASA early 1960s


at the corner Santa Izabel Church and along the road on the left past an empty lot Educandário Bento de Abreu Sampaio Vidal.

Carlus Maximus: me lembro nitidamente de estar presente quando puseram a Pedra Fundamental para a construção do Educandário no início de 1960. Eu nunca cheguei a ver o edifício pronto pois minha família mudou-se de Marília em dezembro 1960. 

Nessa foto aérea dá para notar como Marília era circundada de cafezais nos anos 30s, 40s e 50s. Bastava sair das ruas principais que a gente já 'caía' num cafezal imenso. Era assim perto do Cemitério.

Me lembro que quando era pequeno fui com minha Mãe ao Cemitério, pois ela gostava de visitar o túmulo de sua Mãe que tinha falecido em 1934. De-repente começou a formar um temporal e todo mundo começou a correr para perto do único ponto de ônibus que havia por perto. Uma rajada de vento passou e levou meu bonezinho (devia ter eu 5 anos) que subiu como um balão e foi levado para dentro do cafezal, que mais parecia um oceano verde escuro... dava medo só de ver.

Santa Izabel Church is on the corner of Rua Vicente Ferreira - where Santa Casa is located - and Rua Brigadeiro Eduardo Gomes, going up to Avenida Cascata... rua 21 de Abril starts off at Educandário Bento de Abreu S.V.
Santa Casa medical staff - May 1958; Olguinha Zezzi writes at FB:  Dr. Persio de Carvalho está ao lado do Dr. Adhemar de Toledo Senior; Dr. Granadino de Baptista, Dr. Catalan, que está ao lado do Dr. Gustavo Godoy; Dr. João Batista Foloni está atrás do Dr. Adhemar de Toledo Filho; Dr. Sebastião Mesquita está atrás do Dr. Lourenço Sene; Dr. Casela está em frente do Dr. Persio.

Thanya Viana Catalan goes even further and writes: meu querido pai, Dr. Nicolau Catalan Filho, hoje com 90 anos e sem nenhum sinal de perda de memória, conseguiu lembrar a maioria dos nomes de seus colegas e amigos:  1. Dr. Mendes Filho; 2. Dr. Castro Jr.; 3. Dr. Shibazaki; 4. Dr. Simão Ribeiro; 5. Dr. Ademar Oliveira; 6. Dr. Arnaldo Barros; 7. Dr. Lourenço Senne; 8. Dr. Ferreira Bueno; 9. Dr. Pedro Teruel; 10. Dr. Salvestre; 11. Dr. Guerzoni; 12. Dr. Harita; 13. Dr. Catalan (meu Pai); 14. Dr. Gustavo Godoy; 15. Dr. Mesquita; 16. Dr. Ademar; 17. Dr. Vendramini; 18. ....; 19. Dr. Granadino; 20. Dr. Casela; 21. Dr. Cardeal; 22. Dr. Foloni; 23. Dr. Hilario; 24. Dr. Taminato; 25. Dr. Aurelio; 26. Dr. Persio; 27. Dr. Reinaldo; 28. Dr. Battistetti; 29. Dr. Bellucci; 30. Dr. Salum;  31. Trentini; 32. ... ; 33. Dr. Ademar Toledo & 34. Dr. Campos Neto.

Dispute about a Marilia 1930s photo


Avenida Sampaio Vidal looking East with the 'Gothic façade' of the original Marilia Tennis Club in 1939.

This picture was published at daily 'Correio de Marilia' some time in the 1990s saying this Protestant church built on Avenida Sampaio Vidal some time in the early 1930s was turned into the Marilia Tennis Club. As we don't have any other proof that this is true I leave the matter open to speculation. 

I find it tremendously unlikely that a church that had just been built would surrender its hard fought place in the sun to a sporting club. It's hard to believe such story., 

Well, anyway I'm open to suggestions and eager to see more photos of the site if they're available. 

16 October 2016.

2 years later:

Everthing is open to interpretation. What happened here with this caption published by 'Correio de Marilia' is: 'A primeira sede do Marilia Tennis Club tinha fachada de uma igreja protestante...' 

When the newspaper printed this sentence: 'The first seat of Marilias Tennis Club HAD the façade of a Protestan church'... what they really meant was that the 'Tennis Club façade LOOKED LIKE a Protestan church'...

It didn't mean it HAD BEEN a Protestan church.

You see how devious the way one builds a sentence may be? 

Now, I could finally understand what the newspaper man meant in the first place...

1938 Agricultural Fair - Marilia - April-May

At Marilia's 10th anniversary in April 1938  - there was an Agricultural Fair where the new city's produce could be exhibited to people coming from all over the state. Here's part of a catalogue that was printed in Sao Paulo to be sold at the Fair. Thanks to Wilza Aurora Matos who donated her Grandfather's own copy to Marilia's Historical Records Commission and posted it on Facebook.
