Missing pieces from our history

Two weeks ago I went with some sketchers, Montse Fortino, Maria Per, Mercè Algueró and Montse Fando, thanks to Clara Baylina, sketcher too, to her brother's Bakery. Lately in Barcelona plenty of old establishments are closing forever. All of them rooted to neighborhoods, districts or the whole city, like VINÇON. Baylina's Bakery is less noticeable, not as famous as VINÇON, but as important as it.

 Behind the counter we found a butter smell workshop



Is time to retire to Oriol, Clara's brother, who has ran family business since he was young and now no one will follow in charge of it, one of the oldest cake makers in Barcelona, since 1899. The same year which football club Barcelona was founded. L'Oriol is happy, not sad, because he will spend more time with hir wife and practicing his favourite hobby, photography.



L'Oriol has plenty of stories about his business, now is time to sell all the machines and memories from his whole life.
