Scarce in Europe: diving equipment made in Brazil. The pump where this company badge was riveted onto however did make it over the ocean and is now in a European collection. Its the only one I ever came across, never saw a helmet with a badge from this maker.

Paulista, Sao Paulo Diving Equipment.


the scrapbook of diving history

Found on the internet: an old advertisement mentioning the ‘Paulista’ scaphander, and since Mechanical workshop ‘Person’ is mentioned with the address this could indicate that Person was the maker of the ‘Paulista’ scaphander.
