Our street in Rio Pequeno

Rute, Sandra, Ofélia & Yolanda, our Mother circa 1994. The man sweeping his foot-path is Signore Salvatore, a Italian man originally from Naples who lived with his wife Caterina 3 houses up.
This photo was taken in December 1984 on Estrada do Rio Pequeno. Some 30 years later someone has recognized the boy sitting on the kerb next to a VW's Brasilia as being Piruquinha - who used to 'guard' cars against vandalism while their owners were busy buying vegies at the street market (feira).
