"Since the beginning of the twentieth century, large sums have been spent in Rio
de Janeiro on new avenues, the widening and straightening of old streets, and
the adornment of the water-front by the construction of grand boulevards. One of
these improvements is the Central Avenue, cut across the city from shore to
shore."  This street has been renamed "Avenida Rio Branco".
