Besòs i el Maresme (Barcelona : Barri), Barcelona, Barcelonès
The Besòs i Maresme neighbourhood began to be built, urgently, in 1959, as a response to the great need for housing for the 50’s migratory waves. Occupying what were basically agricultural use soils irrigated by a branch of the Besòs river and the Horta stream, it was created without any kind of public services or equipments which arrived later due to the pressure and the struggles of local civic movements. The collection consists of 67 photographs reflect a part of the fledgling history of this neighbourhood.
