The station Júlio Prestes is a history rail station of the city of São Paulo, Brazil.
The original station was inaugurated on July 10, 1875 by the Estrada Sorocabana and he/she was called Estação Paulo Paulo. His/her function was to bring the coffee of the interior of the State of São Paulo for the capital. The old station was beside the Station of the Light, what facilitated the baldeamento of the coffee, since to Paulo Paulo Railway it was the only that he/she made the itinerary of the capital to the city of Santos.
With passing of the years, the company enriched and it was resolved the construction of a new one a station, of such adult. Then it began the construction of the current station, projected by Cristiano Stockler of Neves in 1925 in the French style Luís XVI. His/her construction was only finished in 1938, time in that the buses already circulated in São Paulo, what inhibited the use of the trolleys and trains. The times of glory of the station lasted very a little. In the forties he/she has his/her name altered in honor to the former-president of the state Júlio Prestes.

Quase como uma foto antiga...
Quase como em 1938, se não fôssem os "gelos baianos" e os altos postes de eletricidade...
O P&B ficou bem na composição.
Parabéns, Sérgio. Fotografia bem apresentada!

sempre vejo belas fotos dessa Estação, e essa é uma das mais interessantes, gostei do efeito que a 17mm criou na imagem, ela parece bem maior, e a qualidade ficou ótima também, bela foto.
Parabéns e Abraço!
