Manresa (Central Catalonia), 1956. 400 years of the death of Saint Ignatius of Loiola, founder of the Jesuit order. He had a Mystical experience (or, so he said!) on a cave close to Manresa.

Views of the sanctuary built there.

These, are hard times. Locked at home, to avoid the spread of the Covid19 (I'm fine!), writting an article on 1936 Barcelona cinderellas, I've ran across these, that I didn`t remember I had:





So, I'm only missing two to look for, when our stamp market reopens on April.

I guess, I'm not the only one on this situation. It's very much alike around, at least on Western Europe.

It's time to enjoy our collections, our books and, above all, take care of ourselves and of our beloved ones.
Better times, are just around the corner!

Nice to hear you are well.
Perhaps a nice opportunity for some quiet introspection...

Thank you very much Rod. You're true. I hope that the covid19 has bypassed Australia.

Some time ago (may be years?) I showed the cinderellas of tha 1933 Album Catalunya (Catalonia Album). Now, locked because of the covis-19, I'm continuing that with some not yet shown items.

Lleida, is a town in Western Catalonia, about 180 km West of Barcelona, by the river Segre on a rich agriculture land. It's a very old city, dating from Roman times. It 's even mentioned on Caesar's Civil War history, as in 49 BC, there was the Ilerda (Roman name of the city) between Caesar's and Pompei troops. Nowadays is considered the capital of Inland Catalonia.

In 1933, Lleida, had 40.000 inhabitants (140.000 nowadays).

Chapter 40 of the Ālbum Catalunya, show Barcelona's suburbs, actually, those on the Serra de Collcerola, a not so high hills range (600 m at the top) that back Barcelona's coastal plain on the West.
Being a urban park, landscape hasn't changed that much since 1933. Only some places.














Here, you can also see the three versions of these cinderllas: grenn-black, blue-green and brown.

Chapter 25, is devoted to Girona (100 km North of Barcelona). Now a 102.000 inhabitants thriving city with much industry and turism around. By 1933, Girona had around 30.000 inhabitants. A quiet, provincial town.
