“This is an incomplete travelogue originally entitled Views of Rio de Janeiro by the French Gaumont Company in 1909. It shows views of Rio’s sea wall, a tree-lined canal, the famous Carioca aqueduct across which a tram is passing and the ascent of a small steam train up the Corcovado mountain railway.
Corcovado railway would be electrified the very next year, while it would be another 22 years before the appearance of Corcovado’s most iconic landmark, the statue of Christ the Redeemer.”
