Albumen print | 28.0 x 41.0 cm (image) | RCIN 2700152

Photograph of the Torre Nueva more popularly known as the 'Leaning Tower of Zaragoza' situated in the Plaza de san Felipe. The tower, which is pictured leaning to the left, is decorated in the Moorish style within the brickwork, the clock face on the bottom half of the tower. At the top, three three tapering conical shaped roves sit on top of one another.

The Tower was built between 1504-12 to house the city's bell and clock and was built in the Mudéjar style. It was eventually demolished in 1892 due to the severity of the lean despite widespread protest.
