Background: On the impossibility for the time being to supply news stories about the events in Ifni, we enclose several library shots on different aspects of those territories.
We attach a summarized explanation in Spanish of the territory of Ifni, specifically of the city of Sidi-Ifni, with its Alcasaba (fortress) and buildings of the old city, together with the modern constructions erected by Spain in her work of colonization. In this connection several typical buildings are shown characteristic of colonial architecture.
Also several aspects of the festivities celebrated presided by the Governor General and a parade of the Ifni Sharp-shooters, as well as details of the educational program, physical education and sports promoted among the natives since the territory was occupied by Spain in 1934.
