Gràcia, is an old village that, in 1897, became a district of Barcelona. Nevertheless, each August we still hold our anual feast. For the 1936 Edition, our grandfathers had prepared this cinderella, showing one of our twon's landmarks: the civil belfry (1865), located on Gràcia's main square. 

Unfortunately, the outburst of the 1936/39 war, in July 19th, aborted the celebrations.

This cinderella exists on, at least 3 colors: red. green and yellow.

Thank you very much Michael. The design, is very much on line with the 1930's style in Catalonia: advanced and free. Our society was very open minded, then. As it's, nowadays again.

I bought it just two weeks ago. I manage to get new cinderellas nearly every Sunday. Normally 4 or 5, sometimes some more. Even in sumer I find some. Sellers, know me and keep the good items, altough I can't pay a lot of Money for them, I'm a weekly customer! That helps.

I look forward to show you Barcelona. Things, are changing quite fast, here!

A modern (1999) patriòtic cinderella, showing Catalan flag (four "blod" stripes on a "golden" background) and a map of the Catalan speaking lands, which embrace molt of the Easter Iberian Peninsula, plus the Balearic Islands.

The "postmark" shows the "Three Branches Pine", meaning the 3 main Catalan speaking territories: Catalunya, València and the Balearic Islands.
