Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Street Scenes from about 1974, Las Ramblas.  All are tritone B&Ws from scanned color Ektachromes. Taken with 45mm lens of my Yashica 35GS rangefinder.  My 5th great grandfather, Capt. Gabriel Sistare Mitzavila, was born in Barcelona in 1725-26.  His ship was wrecked off the Connecticut coast in 1771 during a return run from Havana to Cadiz, and he remained in New London, CT for the rest of his life. I believe all of the US Sistare/Sistere/Sustares are descended from this one man.
