crossing Avenida Brigadeiro Luiz Antonio from Rua Condessa de São Joaquim towards Rua Vicente Prado, where I used to live with my family from 1969 to 1976.
Art-Deco building on the corner of Avenida Brigadeiro Luiz Antonio & rua Vicente Prado.
going further down Memory Lane... these house entrances & front gardens have all gained fences and walls to protect their inhabitants. In the 1970s they had normal fences, but due to deterioration of Brazilian social fabric people have been living within walls most of the time.
