Spain at the Time of Francisco Franco


When military dictator Francisco Franco took power over Spain in 1939, the country experienced 36 years of the authoritarian rule.

In the 1950s, still under Franco's rule, the country experienced substantial economic progress, but the reforms were all poorly coordinated. The government as corrupt, inefficient, and the bureaucracy bloated.

Robert Graham, a former correspondent for the Financial Times, describes the Franco era as "the triumph of paleocapitalism--primitive market skills operating in a jungle of bureaucratic regulations, protectionism, and peddled influence."

Here are some images found all over Spain -- from Toledo, Madrid, Seville, Mallorca, Málaga, Navarra, San Sebastián, Córdoba, and Granada.
