This work provides a glimpse of life in eighteenth century Madrid. Charles Emil Kany presents the city as it would appear to an inhabitant idling in its streets: the gates, the plazas, the sights, the markets and market inspectors, the guilds, the social groups, their characteristic dress, the theatres, education, cultural institutions, and the rituals of the Church.
