Llibreria Catalonia, 1932 – El mon es governat pels llibres (The world is ruled by books) 

Always a sad day when a(nother) bookshop closes. I spent many hours, pesetas and euros at Llibreria Catalonia growing up, one of my parents’ favourite bookshops in central Barcelona open since 1929. I heard the manager on the radio earlier – he said a McDonald’s restaurant is opening in the premises before Easter. Food for thought.
