Photograph of the ticket booths where betting tickets were sold. They were located in the lower space of the Canòdrom, next to the toilets. Currently, the Ada Lovelace room, or event room, is located there, where we are currently celebrating this Collective Documentation Day. Augusto del Rio was the official photographer of the Canòdrom, but we cannot know for sure if this photograph is his or not. In the glass of the booths, we see the reflection of the greyhound track. Several people remember how there were sometimes queues of up to 50 or 60 people. The entry was free, and anyone could bet. The betting tickets worked initially through electromagnets and then with barcode readers. The most veteran participants remember how before the Canòdroms, in the 1930s, there was a racecourse in Montjuïc, where the cemetery is now located.
The father of one of the participants had worked at the Pabellón, the Canòdrom in Plaça Espanya, where the hare worked through a system of pulleys and ropes.
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.
