Antoni Gaudí hit by a tram

On the 7th of June –

In 1926 Antoni Gaudí was hit by a tram in the streets of Barcelona. He died a few days after.
Arquitecto Gaudi;Zeichnung

Here is a picture of his most famous building, the Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona, in the year 1959. One of its main characteristics is that the building process will last forever, so it is quite nice to have a picture of the state of play 50 years ago:

And here Miro and Gaudí ‘meet’ through Gaudí’s Parc Guell:
