‘City of Alleys. Before Via Laietana’

The city’s photographic archive is offering the exhibition ‘City of Alleys. Before Via Laietana’ up until 31 October. The display is made up of a selection of photos from the contest organised by the City Council in 1908 to document all the streets, squares and spaces that would disappear to make way for the Via Laietana. These hugely symbolic images are now the only record of spaces which are long gone. For more information click here. You can also take a virtual tour of the exhibition here.
