Baedeker Barcelona map from 1901

Here. Just about to become completely useless, as work started on tearing up the medieval town from Urquianona more or less via Bilbao and the Plaza del Ángel to the Plaza Antonio López. The Barceloneta bullring is still there (closed 1924), the port has real boats, the basilica of the Merced and the cathedral face onto housing, the Sarriá station on Pelayo is still above ground, the town is dotted with barracks and convents etc etc. Greater Barcelona, with villages like Gracia, Horta, las Corts, San Gervasio, Sarriá, Sans, Hostafranchs, Pueblo Nuevo, and Clot, here. Montserrat here.
