Photograph from Harriet Chalmers Adams BOTAFOGO SHORE, BAY FRONT, TO THE RIGHT; SEA FRONT TO LEFT:RIO DE JANEIRO This remarkable photograph shows both the bay and ocean shores of Rio, affording a clear idea ofhow the two beaches, bay and sea, areconnected by tunnels through the hills. The photograph was made from Sugar Loaf. In the foreground is Urea, the hill orrock connected with Sugar Loaf by aerial ropeway. Nothing can be more striking than the effect of these huge rounded masses of naked rock rising outofthe most luxuriant vegetation.
