A feast at the Spanish consulate in Shanghai




The photograph, published in one of the main newpapers in Madrid, shows some of the members of the Spanish community in Shanghai, such as the Mencarinis, film empresario Antonio Ramos, architect Abelardo Lafuente, and different religious authorities, during a celebration at the consulate in Shanghai. Aportrait of king Alfonso XIII presides in the background.

The document has been discovered by architect Álvaro Leonardo during his PhD research on the life and works of architect Abelardo Lafuente.
