The arrival of the first train to Tupă station, in 1941. At those days the arrival of the railroad to a town was enthusiastically acclaimed, as it was the key factor for prosperity and comfort. Nowadays... well, things changed so much during the last years. Photo from the files of the Folha do Povo, from Tupă; this copy was kindly sent by Ralph M. Giesbrecht, from Săo Paulo SP.
