Newscom always has a way of acquiring images that you may never expect. Our wide variety ranges from pictures of Legos to political caricatures all the way down to toilets. But recently, our partners at Album uploaded some beautiful old photographs of architecture in Barcelona, Spain. The images date from the late 19th century to the early 20th century. They are without a doubt just a spectacular look back into the past.
The above image is that of the Arc de Triomf in Barcelona. Designed by architect Josep Vilaseca I Casanovas, the structure was built in 1888 for the Universal Exposition. The additional images in this archived collection feature works by Antoni Gaudí, Francesc Rogent and others. Churches and Cathedrals are the highlighted, along with Barcelona’s famous Park Guell.
Unfortunately for most of the photographs, there is an unknown photographer, but how fortunate for us that someone captured them. And don’t be fooled into thinking that someone took these using Instagram, even if they kind of do look that way.
So check out these images and more that we have back at Newscom of old architecture photographs in Barcelona, Spain.
