Photographer's Note

In the high one of a hill of the village, it is the Castelinho ("Little Castle" 1897), old residence of the engineer-head of the São Paulo Railway. The strategical position allowed the highest English employee to observe the course of the works in the railroad maneuvers. Today the Center of Preservation of the Memory of Paranapiacaba functions in the Castelinho. There objects and instruments of works of the time of the English are congregated, that had been even so in 1946.
