This publication, richly illustrated, shows the constant and multiform presence of energy in the largest urban centres of the country between the 1930s and the 1970s, correlating the electricity dissemination in Brazil to the transformation in the electrical sector and the national economy in the period. Having as background the story of Brazilian society and the electricity industry, the book portrays the main changes that took place in the urban landscape, lighting, transportation, media, with the advent of the radio and television, and in households and domestic work with the dissemination of house appliances.
