I found these three Catalan vignettes related to the neighbourhood of Gracia which our host knows so well -all published during the Civil War.

Three very interesting cinderellas issued in the old town of Grącia (since 1897 a district of Barecelona)during the 1936-39 war.

The first, issued by the Catalan nationalist party "Esquerra Republicana de Catalunya-Estat Catalą" is for collecting money for the boys of Grącia at the battle front.

The second (written in Spanish), seems to be issued by an anarchist organisation (JJLL= Juventudes libertarias) is to help free, non-church schools.

The third, issued by the Catalan nationalist organisation "Cercle Catalą Republicą de Grącia" encourages the Catalan awareness of people.

Greetings!

Today, I'm happy to share a set of three vignettes from the town L'Hospitalet de Llobregat (part of Barcelona) which were used to raise funds for "passive defence", i.e., the building of shelters, especially, that were used by the civilian population to escape fascist bombings during the Spanish Civil War. Typically, these vignettes show a plane and a falling bomb. Many different types of such vignettes from different Catalan localities were made at the time.

3 very interesting cinderellas issued at l'Hospitalet de Llobregat. Now, it's the second Catalan town, with 265.000 inhabitants. It's so close to Barcelona, that there are many streets with one side on each city. But, both are independent cities with separate councils (it's who we Catalans do things!) and very diferent minded. This, is not unusual in Western Europe, where you can find streets with sides belonging to two diferent countries.

Just bought today, and shown some time ago, but with different colours. 1913, Barcelona, II Spanish Congress on Colonial and Trade Geography (those, were the times!).
It shows a XIV century Catalan report of an expedition to present Gambia River ("Riu de l'Or" = River of Gold, for our ancestors) with the date August 10th 1346.

Hi Joan -here is a sample of some Municipal Stamps from Catalonia which I thought about sharing here. All are from the general period of the Spanish Civil War. Cheers!
