Graffiti stencil portrait of Rita Hayworth in Barcelona

One of the many wonderful things about exploring Barcelona is happening across curious portraits of well-known, and not so well-known, people in unexpected places.

Here’s a portrait of Hollywood star, Betty Grable. Thanks to O.P. [see comments]. I had previously erroneously attributed the portrait to Rita Hayworth.

Came across it on Carrer Lleida, just off Avinguda Paral·el, not so very far from Albert Adrià’s restaurant, Pakta.

Here’s a graffiti portrait of the pioneering aviator (or, should that be aviatrix?), Amelia Earhart in Poble Sec.

Here’s a LINK to an interesting story about Earhart in The Guardian.
