Post cards (Correspondence)

Garraf Regional Archive. Source: Francesc Roig Toqués

Over the years, Francesc Roig Toqués kept all the correspondence he received, much of which was addressed directly to Carpa Juanita, the carp fish.

Some of the letters were not even addressed to the museum, and just arrived addressed to the famous fish, or simply with a drawing of it. They came from places such as New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Cameroon, Italy, Scotland, France, the Low Countries, Switzerland, Chile, United States, etc. The most remote piece of correspondence came from the Spanish Antarctic base. Sometimes Roig Toqués explained that he had received a post card from the Welsh city with the third longest name in the world, with fifty-nine letters (Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch).

Some of these post cards were kept in folders which he showed to visitors and others decorated his desk. The rest are part of his legacy, which is kept at the Garraf Regional Archive.
