Men - the Last of their Species

"Em São Paulo, há uma São Paulo que desaparece em silêncio todos os dias". This week's Veja São Paulo has a nice article about some of the disappearing professions in the city. From pinball machine repairers to handwriting teachers, the winds of soial, economic and technological change are both leading to the extinction and even in some cases the rediscovery of some of the trades of the 20th century. The magazine did  not make any direct reference to this but all of the professionals selected were men, which we are sure might just be a sign of another social trend.
