[oblong folio (9-1/2" x 12") with printed card covers; string-bound, split along spine with about 2/3 of the spine covering missing and some additional paper loss extending into the corners of the front cover, but with the double-hole-punched pages still firmly held together by the binding cord; otherwise, the covers are edgeworn and age-browned, but the interior photographic plates are clean and in excellent condition]. (photographs) A photographic souvenir booklet of this Barcelona resort/casino, which opened in 1928. There is a one-page introduction, in Spanish, and the remainder of the book is photographic. Although most of the 14 full-page sepia-toned plates are shots of empty rooms (the main Hall, the Brasserie, the Salon de Fiestas, etc.), meant to show off the opulence of the place, a number are "populated" with bathers, diners, etc., and give a good sense of the resort activity.
