A trip to LIMEIRA-SP in 1956

Maria Puerta aka Mariinha on a visit in Limeira-SP in 1956. 
Maria Puerta presented a radio show on Radio Clube de Marilia in the afternoon where she was known as Mariângela. She eventually got married with Beatriz's brother Alecio. They left Marília for São Paulo where they lived in a house on rua Fernão Dias in Pinheiros. Here Maria poses in front of Gruta da Praça a famous band-stand in the main square. It may not look like a bandstand but so it is. It served also as a café during those times.
