    Stunning building... 1929! Only three years earlier Gaudi was still refining his designs for the Sagrada Familia (and he still would've been in 1929 if it hadn't been for the tram that ran him over and killed him)... as much as I love that building, this does make it seem old-fashioned...

    Great shots, too! :thumbup:
