Let's jump back to 2000. That year, as it was 100 years since the foundation of Barcelona's second soccer team "Reial Clud Deportiu Espanyol de Barcelona", our city's stamps and coins Traders Guild, issued a series of sheets with cinderellas showing different items realing to the centenary celebrations.

The first cinderella, shows the poster of the Barnafil'2000 stamp exhibition.




While the second does with the logo, a painting, a picture of the celebrations and the mascot.




I wish to apologize the readers if they feel that the standard of this thread is not what it used to be. The present circumstances: being locked down for 8 weeks, without any proper post (just bills!), our weekly market closed and the contact with fellow collectors banned, make it impossible to obtain fresh new items to show.
On the other side, I'm aware that there many friends all around the world facing situations alike. And, for them forums are a relaxing window. So, I try to update this thread almost daily and I I've to use my old stock-books and files, showing (perhaps) not first class items. But, I truly do my best. I hope that you'll understand. Thank you.

In 1150 Ramon Berenguer IV (1113-1162)Count of Barcelona, Prince-lord of Aragon and lord of most of today's Southern France, give the monks of the Cister order a great plot of land on the south of his domains (not far from the old Roman city of Tarragona) to set a monastery to colonize the lands recovered some years ago from the invading muslims. It took its name, "Poblet" from "Populus" (the Latin word for the tree poplar)
Through the years,the monastery (a Gothic jewel) prospered, fostered by the fact that, Since Ramon Berenguer IV, Poblet became the resting place of the kings of Catalonia-Aragon; thus becoming very rich.
Deserted after 1835, monastic life returned in 1940 and since 1991 its a Unesco World Heritage Site.`
By 1932, Poblet was a semidestroyed building. Nowadays, fully rebuilt it's a thriving religious site and a very important cultural Catalan landmark.

Chapters 27 & 28 of the Album Catalunya, show Catalan institutions, that were important back in 1933. Some of them (the most political) didn't survive the 1936-39 war turmoil; while others have managed to reach our days: Orfeó Català, Institut d'Estudis Catalans, Ateneu Barcelonès. Centre Excursionista de Catalunya and Orfeó Gracienc. Others, like the Societat per a l'Atracció de Forasters, changed its name (since many years ago is Patronat Municipal de Turisme de Barcelona), others revived after 1975 never to regain their former relevance and some other vanished forever.
















I've actually been member of the Cente Excursionista de Catalunya, and of the Institut d'Estudis catalans, as well as boy-scout. I'm also a good friend of the Orfeó Gracienc and, quite often, I'm at the Ateneu Barcelonès, with a friend who is a member, chatting on cinderellas...

A very interesting and uncommon item. The card was issued to help fund a children's world stamp exhibition, held at the premises of the Savings Bank at Barcelona's Horta street on March 1956.
It's very interesting the name of the organisation "La Vaguardia Obrera" (Worker's vanguard) a name that should look very "subversive" at the heigh of Franco's dictatorship.
Both, organisation and exhibition premises, were located at the old village of Horta, since 1903 a Barcelona district. But, by 1956 still a "far away" place.
