Salvador, Brazil

Photograph by James L. Stanfield, National Geographic

Photographer James Stanfield captured the city of Salvador, Brazil, for a 1969 story on Charles Darwin's voyage aboard the H.M.S. Beagle. "A peculiar and rather fantastic style of architecture," National Geographic quotes Darwin, who was impressed by the city and its grand view of All Saints Bay. "But these beauties are as nothing compared to the Vegetation."
