Paul Fallot visit to the Crevillente Sierra on 1931

A compilation of geological landscape images of the Crevillente Sierra prior to the Spanish civil war found in  the historical archives have been made. Specifically from the authors Daniel Jiménez de Cisneros and Hervás, Bartolomé Darder Pericàs and Paul Fallot. Many different works have been carried out on the first two authors, while the stereographic photographs of the Paul Fallot Fund in the Archive of the University of Granada  are mentioned for the first time.

During the preparation of the Symposium Tribute to D. Daniel Jiménez de Cisneros y Hervás, in 2004, part of the glass gelatin silver emulsions in the Jimenez de Cisneros collection were cataloged and scanned.

Tables are made with the description of the glasses and some images that have been described in previous works are shown. The conservation of this material is worthwhile because you can see how the landscape of the mountains has changed from the beginning of the last century to the present day.

Stereoscopic pictures number 1849 of the Paul Fallot Fund of the Granada University. Numbered as 2452 by its author and described as: “Néogene Colina del Castillo S. de Crevillente P.F. 31” (Paul Fallot 1931). Bottom El Frare from el Pla taken on February 13th of 2004 by J. E. Tent-Manclus.
