“The most interesting fact of this poster is that said championship, organised by the “Federación Balear de Natación” (the Balearic Swimming Federation), did not take place in the end, since on July the 17th of 1936 the Spanish Civil War broke out; the following championships (1937, 1938, 1939) were also skipped, as well as the 2020 one due to Covid-19. During the Civil War our printing press could only work at night due to the lack of electricity during the day. The war years were very hard, but the effort and perseverance of our ancestors got Imprenta Nueva Balear going again.” Belen Aguilo, Nueva Balear, October 2022.
