Quaint little wooden houses that still survive in Marilia... and some in Lacio-SP

Marilia-SP started out as a small settlement in 1924. By 1929 it was a municipality. The early houses were all built of wooden planks, a practice that continued for many decades to come. Now, they arebuilt of mortar & bricks but Marilia still boasts a few examples of this particular kind. Have a look at some of them beauties that have stood the test of time. All photos were taken by Ronaldo Ferreira. We thank him very much for the courtesy.

This ain't no ordinary folks; they were actually the very top of Marilia society between 1935 and 1940. The one wearing the whitest suit in the centre - first row - is none other than Bento de Abreu Sampaio Vidal; the ecclesiastic eminence is Monsignor Luiz Almeida Bicudo

Ronaldo Ferreira identified some of the other people on the stairsway leading to the entrance of Santa Casa de Misericórida: Dr. Edmundo Freire, Dr. Carlos de Moraes Barros & Dr. Erico Cardeal. Just in front of the nuns chemist (farmacêutico) Venâncio de Souza who was 32 years-old then, brought to Marilia (presumably from Araraquara-SP) along with Dr. Carlos de Moraes Barros (President Prudente de Moraes' son-in-law) who opened Farmacia Santa Carolina next to Hotel São Bento on Avenida Sampaio Vidal.
