Carrer de Bilbao, Poblenou

This chimney is, I think, in the square bound by Carrer de Bilbao, Carrer de Llull, Carrer del Joncar and Carrer de Marià Aguiló. Chimneys such as these are often the only relics preserved of the old factory complexes of Poblenou now destroyed. Although standing tall, scattered as they are and surrounded by the growths of the new building, they are discovered upon turning corners, not sighted on the skyline. This one bears a protective encasement as all around is razed to foundation level.
