The Biblioteca Nacional de España comprises hundreds of thousands of different photographs, books with photographs, albums, collections, business records of photographers and subject-based archives. Most belong to the period between 1850 and 1990. Although gaps exist, it can be said that practically all the avenues of evolution and development of photography since it became available to the public in 1839 are represented here.
