Who needs a hat?

This store has 114 years, is of the time when everybody used hats! In 1895, its address was the corner of the street of the Jewellers with the street of the Mental Hospital! Amazing!

Esta loja tem 114 anos, é do tempo em que todo mundo usava chapéus! Em 1895, seu endereço era esquina da rua dos Ourives com rua do Hospício! Fantástico!


  1. And they still sell enough today to keep the business going? Wow.

  2. In the window at the other side we can see the other things for sale ... shirts, blouses, pajamas, nightdresses...

  3. Stores like this have all but disappeared here.

  4. Hi Marieloupe. Thanks for visiting us at the Egypt Experience. Lovely to find your blog all about Brazil.... lovely pics.... I'll definitely be back to have another look. I don't know much about your country at all so always interested to read more. Thanks and regards

We walk by the streets of our city and very often we don’t realize its images, which are there and which suddenly are not any more.

To photograph and glance is to guard images, impressions. It is also to re-discover the space where we live, our imaginary and scenario of our lives.

Our glance is not enough. It is necessary that others look what we see.

Andamos pelas ruas de nossa cidade e muitas vezes não percebemos suas imagens, que estão ali e que de repente não estão mais.

Fotografar e olhar é guardar imagens, impressões. É também redescobrir o espaço em que vivemos, nosso imaginário e cenário de nossas vidas.

Nosso olhar não basta. É preciso que outros olhem o que vemos.

Who see me?

To whom?
