Carnival in court

Here, from 1957, is Cádiz Renfe’s stationmaster using the regional Information and Tourism-crat to get a carnival club to change the title of their mini-show from “The Stationmaster and His Subordinates” to “Infernal Train Emigrants”. Here‘s an equally hilarious case from 2004, in which the mayoress and assistant of Archidona (Málaga) obtain a court order preventing carnival-goers continuing to sing about them. Both are from the excellent Baratillo de Carnaval de Cádiz, a collection of carnival artifacts dating back to the end of the nineteenth century.
