Albert Martín publishing house collection at the Biblioteca de Catalunya

Blanca Bonet Martín, the granddaughter of Albert Martín, donated 9,630 retouched photographs to the library distributed in 94 boxes, along with around 9,000 glass negatives, the majority of which correspond to the photographs printed on paper, and 150 stereoscopic views, also printed on paper. The photographs, which date from the early 20th century, are an extremely good way to learn about the history and customs of Spain, since they feature typically folkloric scenes in the different provinces, as well as monuments, objects and iconic locations.
