While BU has offered a language and liberal arts program in Madrid for decades, practically the only thing we can tell you about this 1950s picture is that it was not taken in Spain. This is one of those barely identified photographs from the archives of Photo Services -- the negative is marked "matador." The bullfighter is holding a 1949 leaflet promoting a corrida in Mexico to benefit poor children. We can see the Charles River and Cambridge out the window, which places him in a BU office on Bay State Road. Can a reader tell us what the matador was doing here? Boston University Photo Services
