33 Fascinating Color Photos Capture Everyday Life of Brazil in the Mid-1960s

Brazil is the largest country in both South America and Latin America. It is the world's fifth-largest country by area and the fifth most populous. Its capital is Brasília, and its most populated city is São Paulo.

The federation is composed of the union of the 26 states, the Federal District, and the 5,570 municipalities. Brazil is the largest country to have Portuguese as an official language and the only one in the Americas; it is also one of the most multicultural and ethnically diverse nations, due to over a century of mass immigration from around the world.

Brazil is considered an advanced emerging economy. It is one of the world's major breadbaskets, being the largest producer of coffee for the last 150 years.

These fascinating color photos were taken by Gene Whitmer that documented everyday life of Brazil from 1965 to 1967.
