Adiléia Silva da Rocha later known as Dolores Duran, was born in 7 June 1930. 

Adiléia in 1941, when she was 11 years-old.

Irley Rocha, Adileia's baby sister says they used to live in Caxias-DF, on a street with only four or five houses on each side. At the end of the street there was this clearing where future Dolores Duran poses for a snapshot. 

Is it Marlon Brando playing Stanley Kowalski  in Tennessee Willam's 'A Streetcar Named Desire'? No, it's Serra Grande, a waiter at night-club Vogue who was Dolores Duran's beau in the early 1950s. Mrs. Josefa Rocha is seen in the background setting up the table.
