A V8 electric locomotive arriving at the Santos harbour in 1946, after six years of delay due to the WW II. It is being lifted from the ship by the Titan crane. The odissey begins... till the bitter end in the beginning of the XXI century. This photo was kindly sent by Laércio Ferreira de Oliveira, from Itu, SP. According to Lourenço Senne Paz, this photo was published in the book Os Portos Brasileiros (The Brazilian Ports), edited in 1949. Apparently it was originally published by the Observador Econômico e Financeiro, Rio de Janeiro, 1949.
