George’s Postcard Note: By the middle of our first day in Barcelona it had really started raining, but I wanted to keep painting. We decided to see what the inside of the station across from the hotel looked like. We went through the ticket lobby and into the train shed. One whole platform was covered with tables and chairs. It had been the site of an event the evening before. Guys were stacking them and taking them away. We sat down in a couple of these quite comfortable chairs, and I started painting. The stackers came closer and closer, trains moved down the track, and, just before we had to vacate our chairs, I had finished.
