Salto Grande do Paranapanema, São Paulo (SSP-1260)

Mapa Geral do Brasil (Jornal do Brasil), 1911

The freguesia of Salto Grande do Paranapanema was created around 1880 on the north bank of the Paranapanema River in the municipality of Santa Cruz do Rio Pardo, almost 400 km west of the province capital São Paulo. Salto Grande refers to the big waterfall provided naturally in the location near the mouths of the Pardo and Novo Rivers, where eventually a hydroelectric power plant has been built. The locality was made a district in April 1891, a villa in December 1906, and since October 1922 it is the municipality of Salto Grande.

The local post office was created in January 1887, as reported by the Rio press:

Gazeta de Noticias, Rio de Janeiro, January 4, 1887

No imperial cancel has come into light until now.

Carta da Republica dos Estados Unidos do Brazil, 1892

Die freguesia von Salto Grande do Paranapanema entstand ca. 1880 am Nordufer des Flusses Paranapanema im Municipio von Santa Cruz do Rio Pardo und lag fast 400 km westlich der Provinzhauptstadt São Paulo entfernt. Der Name Salto Grande bezieht sich direkt auf den großen Wasserfall vor Ort, nah der Mündung der Flüssen Pardo und Novo, wo inzwischen ein Wasserkraftwerk gebaut wurde. Die Ortschaft stieg im April 1891 zum Distrikt und im Dezember 1906 zur Villa auf, seit Oktober 1922 heißt sie der Município von Salto Grande.

Das örtliche Postamt entstand im Januar 1887, wie die Presse aus Rio de Janeiro berichtet:

Kein Stempel aus der Kaiserzeit konnte bisher gefunden werden.
