The author spent three months sketching, measuring and photographing architecture in Spain during the first World War, in defiance of mines and submarines and "nervously suspicious officials." Possessing admirable photographic equipment, an inquiring mind, and the traditional artistic temperament, the author photographed and sketched everything that appealed to him, and these large format photographs are the result. A rare view into Spain during WWI.
