Spain #58

By handlerstudio  

So this is the last upload of images from Barcelona.....this was the stairway (from the top floor) of the B&B we stayed in while in Barcelona. We were unaware until much later of the issues, particularly in Barcelona, of tourists staying in B&Bs. We were in a nice residential neighborhood, so it reduced the housing stock for local people, and hurt hotels and apparently the local tax base as well. That bering said, it was very convenient, let us make breakfast to our tastes every day, and in a walking city, in walking distance from almost everything we wanted to do in Barcelona. The version included is the elevator in the building.

I wil return to Spain, headed to Oviedo, where Isaac was in school studying Spanish....if you have a kid abroad, you go visit. Then off to Bilbao, and then Seville.

Starting tomorrow, for a few days, I will be responding to Spring, with the miracle of everything coming up with beauty in the midst of pandemic.

A correctly designed staircase and an elevator of the period before 1955, which is a piece of art. I'm glad to see these. Excellent photos, Peter!

The elevator is quite charming---probably slow and scary--1 or maybe 2 people???

I can't manage stairs these days so that fancy lift would be useful.

Great POV on the staircase . I Love the old elevator as well Peter. V2 is just missing the elavator operator, also from a bygone era . We had a few interesting elevator operator men and later women over the years in an old building in Downtown Calgary that I frequented ..
Regards Walt
