About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Ha sido un placer encontrar esta foto, que probablemente está hecha por un fotografo callejero; tengo una de mi madre de la misma época y en el mismo sitio; como ya he comentado la Plaza de España, Saludos otra vez, Joaquín Sanz.

Pregunta

Esa escena esta fotografiada en la Plaza de España de Zaragoza. Detras se aprecia el edificio del Banco Zaragozano. Si necesita más información se la puedo proporcionar, así como fotografías de la época de Zaragoza. Saludos cordiales, Joaquín Sanz
