Eduardo Barreiros and the Recovery of Spain

This chapter describes the different aspects of the Barreiros family in Madrid. The Barreiros family was not alone in Spain in traveling to Madrid in 1952. The most characteristic sight in the country during the late 1940s and early 1950s was that of large provincial families with many suitcases on station platforms waiting patiently, under an elegant French clock put up two generations before, for the train to Madrid, Barcelona, or Bilbao. The availability of so many new Madrileños for work did wonders for the labor market in Madrid. Eduardo Barreiros, a new immigrant of a different kind, was one of the many who benefited from his new factory. Always impeccably dressed, he would be driven to the factory by a chauffeur, Rafael, sometimes by the botones of the Calle Ferraz, Alonso Collar, a Madrileño with ambition.
