Barcelona’s lost metro stations

Estacions fantasmes del metro de Barcelona (via Dani@Altres Barcelones) has got some great contemporary photos, digital reconstructions and historical material.

The one thing I find curious is that, as with lots of Spanish websites, sourcing is vague and intellectual property appear not to be an issue. While one part of the Spanish blogosphere suffers periodic attacks of outrage at plagiarism in the traditional media, another more substantial part devotes considerable energies to reproducing copyright material without permission. Conflict with law and practice is quite normal in Spain, but I still find it curious.
