RIO DE JANEIRO, IN THE LAND OF LURE 207 DELIVERING TAMANCOS, OR WOODEN SHOES This is the typical footgear of the working people of Rio. The shoes are manufactured in the city and are not unlike the type of shoe worn by the Filipinos-that is, in their form. They have wooden soles and their 'clap-clap" is like that heard on the streets of Japan. Photographs by Harriet Chalmers Adams ONE OF RIO'S 454 LICENSED CAKE-SELLERS The cake-seller is on every street of the down-town section of Rio and is especia'ly in evidence at the entrance to parks. The Brazilians are very fond of sweets, and the cakes are as rich as French pastry. They are carried in glass cases.
