Photograph from Harriet Chalmers Adams MANGUE CANAL AND AVENUE WITH THE QUADRUPLE ROWS OF ROYALPALMS: RIO DE JANEIRO The canal was constructed long ago, to drain an unsanitary portion of old Rio. This is the finest palm avenue inexistence. At the end of the avenue near the bay, where new land has been reclaimed recently, the city has planted new trees, which intime will rank with their elders. The Quinta B6a Vista (see text, page 195) is in this part of the town, which in the days of DomPedro Iwas the country.
