En 1933 se hizo una nueva reformulación, igualmente con diez distritos: I-Barceloneta, II-Poble Sec y Montjuïc, III-Sarrià, Vallvidrera y Sant Gervasi, IV- Sant Pere y Dreta de l'Eixample, V-Raval, VI-Esquerra de l'Eixample, VII-Sants, Les Corts y Hostafrancs, VIII-Gràcia, IX-Horta, Sant Andreu del Palomar, Sagrera y Camp de l'Arpa, X-Sant Martí de Provençals, Clot y Poblenou. Estos distritos fueron ampliados en 1949 con dos más: XI-Las Corts y XII-Sagrada Familia.

I have found the above-quoted information on Wikipedia regarding the districts of Barcelona. It would seem that there were only 10 during the war, which makes a one-to-one link between the "radi" and districts somewhat unclear. I think there is still some degree of mystery regarding the exact meaning of "radi" as used by the PSUC.

There's an exhibition, currently (up to April 2021) being held in one of Barcelona's main exhibion venues, Palau Robert, at Passeig the Gràcia, the most important avenue of our city.

Under the title "Aixafem el feixisme!" (Let's smash fascism!) It shows the work of the "Comissariat de Propaganda" (propaganda dpt.9 of Catalonia's Governement, during the 1936-39 war. This body, issued a lot of remarcable cinderellas, some of which are shown on the exhibition.



(Famous Catalan and Spanish polititians)




(Women at the home-front)

This is something seldom seen at exhibitions, that use to neglect the cinderella/poster stamp production.

Hello Joan,

I hope you are well and staying safe in these complicated times.

I very much enjoyed your post about the exhibition "Aixafem el feixisme!"

I looked through my collection and was able to find three more colours for the "Dona a la rearguarda" stamps. I'm uploading these so people can see the differences. I believe there are two more colours which I don't have.

Best wishes,

Giovanni

I had in mind to show you, Joan, this little but interesting vignette from my collection for a while because in the catalogues, it is listed as "Ateneo de Gracia". However, when I looked at it carefully today after I scanned it, I realized it said instead "Ateneo R. Acracia" which likely means "Ateneo Republicano Acracia" (which itself translates to "Republican anarchist school". I think the vignette is an interesting little piece of history. In the republican zone, the civil war led to the founding of many new types of libertarian schools very different from the traditional catholic schools.

All the best,

Giovanni

Hi Giovanni, I'm glad that you liked my post on the "Aixafem el feixisme" exhibition. I, actually went again yesterday and I was able to pick a magazine, issued by the Catalan governemnt for the exhibition. A A-4, 35 pages full colour issue with a lot of interesting information on the "Comissariat de Propaganda" history and work.

Thank you very much for showing the "La dona a la rereguarda" items (I've none of them).

As for the anarchist cinderella, although most internet shops tend to label any anarchist, comunist or even Catalan items as "Civil war", it could be issued anytime between 1931/39 (II Spanish Republic years) , as Anarchism was widespread not only in Catalonia, but also in Andalucia, were agriculture workers' conditions were terrible.

Dear Joan,

I was reviewing my Catalan vignettes recently and I encountered three that I thought would be interesting for this thread.

They relate to (from Wikipedia) "the events of 6 October (Catalan: Fets del sis d'octubre) were a general strike, armed insurgency and declaration of a Catalan State by Catalonia's autonomous government on 6 October 1934, in reaction to the inclusion of conservatives in the republican regime of Spain. They took place as part of a nationwide strike and armed action known as the Revolution of 1934. Catalan President Lluís Companys declared the Catalan State at 8 p.m. Martial law was declared, and military forces attacked the Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya (Palace of the Government of Catalonia) and other buildings. Companys surrendered on the morning of 7 October."

The vignettes were printed to support political prisoners. The pink and blue one is particularly dramatic.

With this, let me wish you bones festes de Nadal amb els teus,

Giovanni

Dear Giovanni

Thank you very much for the images and your nuce words.
Unfortunately, we Catalans are used to have some of our best people in jail or on exile. Like right now, having more that 3000 people sufering spanish represion.

Anyway, I wish you, your family and our SCF friends "Bones Festes I un Millor any 2021" a Happy Xmas Season and a Better 2021

Reus (120 SW of Barcelona) is the market-place of a thriving agricultural county. Hence, this 1933 poster stamp of an exhibition on land's fruits.

Thank you for showing us this rare vignette from Reus, Joan!

It inspired me to post another one I have from Reus from the 1930s. It shows what I interpret as collaboration between intellectuals and workers, and promotes the education of the workers by being "pro-libraries". Issued by the United Socialist Party of Catalunya, it states "United we will build a prosperous and happy Spain".

On this note, may I wish you and all that read this thread a Prosperous and Happy New Year.
