Celebrating 80 years since the first settlement (August 1929) and 75 of emancipation or incorporation (December 1934):

LONDRINA 1934

LONDRINA 1937

The city was completelly surrounded by Mata Atlântica (Subtropical/Tropical Rain Forest), which covered the northern and western Paraná state back then.

In Brazil, only Brasília is younger (1960 against 1934) and bigger (3,600,000 against 800,000) than Londrina. Goiânia (2,100,000 people, capital of Goiás state) is one year older (1933) than Londrina.

Love these old photos! Great post, Yuri

The changes over such a small period of time are incredible... from little settlements like these to the big bustling and modern city you see today! Wonderful!

Nice looking city, but it hurts my heart to see the Brazilian forest disappear....

Many Brazilian cities look like toothpick holders when seen from above.

I don't see the logic, sorry. What do caves have to do with the destruction of the rain forest???

Mishevy, today Paraná state has 10.5 million people in a relativelly small area: 199,000 km² (UK: 242,000 km²). There are in the state, 399 municipalities and something like 1,500 urban centers, including cities (municípios) and small villages (distritos).

Paraná state alone is responsible for 25% of Brazilian food production (the biggest producer), in only 2% of Brazil area (8,500,000 km², slighter bigger than continental US). And that's even more impressive if we take in account that Brazil is one of the world leaders in the agrobusiness sector today.

So it's quite natural that the most of the subtropical rain forest has gone. However, until today, there are sizeable national and state parks in Paraná state. I agree with you: it's a shame, but that's consistent with human occupation.

First, that's not rain forest, it's a sub-tropical moist forest... not all of Brazil is made of the Amazon

Second, the 200 million brazilians have to be alocated somewhere, don't you agree!?

And between the Amazon in the north, the pantanal in west, the dunes in the northeast, the moist in south, and the atlantic woods alongside the shore, WHERE could we possibly set place??

Nice city. I like very much that is surrounded by a lot vegetation and by a beautiful river.

I'm surprised that Londrina has an enormous amount of medium height apartment/condos buildings and a population of less than 1 million people.

Some quick facts:

Population (2008):
Municipality: 505,184
Metro Area: 759,033
I've noticed that most cities in Brasil have a lot of high-rise apartment buildings. Why is that...is that part of the brasilian culture? Do brasilians like living more in (apartment/condos) buildings than single family homes.

Yes, indeed. It primarily started with the violence concerns, but after a couple of decades it just boomed in the taste of brazilians 'cause of the benefits it brings, like allowing more people to live close to a central area, or the transportation facility... nowadays you can find apartments with over 1000 sq. feet and more! They come in all shapes and forms and don't differ from a single family's house in almost any particular way (except that they are all put above each other).
