Perforating machine of the brand “Hampson Bettridge”, with pedal, from 1952. Object used in Carris’s Typography, created in 1878, with the purpose of printing tickets that, thus, should not only be more economical, but also allow a more effective combat to the counterfeiting of transport tickets.

At the end of the 1st year of activity, the workshop had a press and a guillotine, manuals, and a perforating machine. This workshop was closed in December 2003. The original stamps and fonts were manufactured at the Casa da Moeda workshops.

Aumentar


Overview of the site specific intervention by Elton Hipólito, artist of the Cistern Gallery, at the Carris Museum made in May of 2019. The mural was created with water-based paint and mineral pigments extracted from the local earth. Named “Memories of the 28”, the painting pays tribute to the history of CARRIS, the traditional rout of the tram 28 and the city. 

This composition was based on a research in the museum's library, in which we observe elements that refer to the origins of Carris and the relationship of people who use this collective transport, both past and present. 

You can visit this artwork outside the Carris Museum on the second Nucleus.
