The neighborhood under construction from the first balcony
🎙️ Collective documentation
The perspective is from the window of the cedent's father; the author of the photograph. The neighborhood of Congrés Eucarístic began to be built in the early 1950s. The first delivery of houses was four years later, in 1954. That is precisely why, from where the photograph is taken, it was the first building in the neighborhood and why we can have this perspective of a neighborhood under construction. At the end of one of the photographs, we see the Can Ros farmhouse. We also distinguish a vacant lot with construction machinery. We are undoubtedly facing one of the first photographs of the neighborhood.
Photography collective documented by residents participating in the Jornada de Documentació Col·lectiva de la Nit de Memòries, held on september 30th at the Canòdrom.
