Interesting, and quite different to what is usual in other countries (including mine). BrasŪlia doesn't have a mayor, only a district governor which does pretty much what state governors do.

It's a federational anomaly. Similar to the City of London and the Vatican.

I was more of a Dove Blue purist.

Saw that and thought of John Fogerty:



Seriously, the commercial signage on my 1954 23-window barn door had faded but when it was wet you could see it in the patina. It said "Miss Pratt's School of the Dance and Day Care Center". Chestnut Brown and Sealing Wax red, of course.

I told someone that story around the turn of the century, and they said "I haven't seen it but I saw a video of it under a tarp in [new owner's] back yard."
