Photographic history of Mazarrón recorded in new book

For anyone interested in learning more about the history of Mazarrón, a new book called ‘Recordando el tiempo’ ('Remembering the time') by Juan Francisco Belmar is going on sale in local bookshops. The book apparently contains about 400 photographs tracing the history of the city, plus 34 articles which faithfully record the development of the town. Read an article about this new reference source here. Profits from the sale of the book will be going to the 'Cofradía Virgen de La Soledad' ('Brotherhood of the Virgin of La Soledad'). Even though the book is written in Spanish, perhaps the copious photographs it contains will allow those whose understanding of the language is imperfect to enjoy perusing it.
