Upon closer inspection
When we look more closely, we are rewarded with greater insight. Last week I found a 19th century photo of the Château de Vaumarcus , the de Büren family home for many generations, and decided to make a high resolution scan for this blog. It seemed at first...

Fernanda Torres's profile photo
 
Dear Mr. De Buren,
The "Scenes of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil shot during my grandparents' 1960 trip to South America" are fantastic, thank you for sharing them.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XnA8m4sWdc

My name is Fernanda Torres, I am a researcher in Multirio - Municipal Company of Midias,  linked to Rio de Janeiro's Secretary of Education, that develops educational material (publications and Tv programs) for the public schools of Rio de Janeiro.

At the moment we are elaborating a series of 5 programs in order to commemorate Rio's 450 years. One of the programs is about its IV Centenary (1965) and I am searching for images of the city in the 60s. So I would like to know if it would be possible to reproduce a piece of this film in Multirio's program.
I thank you in advance.

Best regards,

Fernanda Torres
