Órgiva – Then and Now #9

Now you see it, now you don’t. The Guardia Civil headquarters in Órgiva, opened in 1948, was once surrounded by, well, not that much. Today, the Plaza Alpujarra stretches out in from of it, a car park to its right (near the site of the weekly market) and a bar to the left. Someone planted a whole load of trees too.

The date of the photograph is unknown – but probably soon after its construction in the late 1940s. (Photographer of old photo unknown, happy to remove or credit.)
