Black Market at Barcelona Port
A sepia picture of Barcelona Port, one of the places with greater affluence of tourists and black market dealers. People from diverse origin concentrate around here and participate in what is known as top manta, a term derived from the small blanket where they display their merchandise. There is a sort of simple mechanism with cords over the blanket to enable them to pick everything up very fast and carry it all simulating a bag. Although a law was passed recently by the City Council to eliminate such practices the fact is that it is still very common around this area and the city center.
