In a couple of two big notebooks of kraft paper, the goalkeeper kept clippings, letters, photos, postcards and notes.
Marcos Carneiro de Mendonça's albums are stored at the National Library and are considered, in the words of Mario Filho, "the most complete repository of football events from 1910 to 1919".
According to newspapers of the time, if the cement bags used to build Maracanã were pilled, they would be as twice as high as Sugar Loaf hill. No wonder, the hill and Maracanã are still symbols of Rio. And, regardless their geographical distance, they are placed together at postcards and posters back in the time of the Openning.
