São Paulo Urbanization (1957-2007)

Folha.com (what could be considered the equivalent of the New York Times here in Brazil) is publishing special articles on the 457º Anniversary of the City of São Paulo.

The articles are written in Portuguese. But you can enjoy a few images of São Paulo Urbanization here.
