Rua Xavier de Toledo, Conselheiro Crispiniano


O quarteirão da rua Conselheiro Crispiniano entre a rua Barão de Itapetininga e a rua 7 de Abril nos anos 1950s - era conhecido pela concentração de lojas de fotografia como a Fotoptica, Lutz Ferrando e outras. Nesse trecho passava a linha de bondes para Pinheiros no. 29 e Vila Madalena no. 28.

This could be 1963, 1964 or 1967. One can see a Simca-Chambord, a Gordini and many VWs parked on the left-hand side. I wish I knew their make-year. See Vila Anastacio bus coming towards us? Busses.
