In 1929, the World's Fair was held in Seville, Spain. The fair was held in Maria Louisa Park and the majority of the exhibits were built to be permanent, functioning buildings after the event was over. For example, this is Plaza de Espana which showed the Spanish exhibit and is now government offices.
This was the largest exhibit during the fair. In the middle of the plaza is a large fountain (to the left, out of frame). You might be able to see that there are bridges going over a canal in front of the building.
One of my favorite parts is those bridges. Spain is known for their ceramic work. The handrail and spindles are hand painted ceramic pieces. While some bridges need repair today, this one was in perfect shape forming another one of my favorite Spanish photos.
