VASCONCELLOS, Maria da Penha Costa y RODRIGUES, Jaime. Photography as a hygienist's working tool (São Paulo, first half of the twentieth century). Hist. cienc. saude-Manguinhos [online]. 2006, vol.13, n.2, pp. 477-491. ISSN 1678-4758. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-59702006000200014.
The University of São Paulo's Public Health School Memory Center houses an iconographic collection that offers new sources for studying objects that drew the attention of hygienists in São Paulo in the first half of the twentieth century. Trained at the Hygiene Institute (which became the School of Hygiene and Public Health in 1945), these hygienists saw a tone of censure in these photographs, which revive for us an urban environment characterized by the absence of suitable infrastructure and housing. Other photographs deal with the educational environment, presented as the salvation of future generations, through sanitary education.
