This is a picture postcard showing Avenida São João in São Paulo, Brasil. It was written to my mom. I've blurred the names of my mom and her cousin for privacy reasons.
The postcard is dated September 29, but unfortunately, there isn't a year included in the date. I know it was written after July of 1952, because that's when my mom and her family emigrated from Brazil to the United States. I've written about their immigration story in my genealogy blog, Jana's Genealogy and Family History Blog.
The family traveled by ship, arrived in New York, bought a car and some camping equipment, and traveled across the United States toward their final destination in Southern California. Along the way, they took pictures and bought postcards. If you'd like to read about their trip, click HERE.
Transcription from back of postcard:
This picture is to help you to do not forget me, and within a few days I'll write you a very big letter. Hoping you are all right. I close it with love to all of you,
from your cousinWhat a sweet postcard!
Thanks for stopping by!
