This lively and colourful landscape view is rare. The title was first listed on label 31+29 of 1898, rare early issues being affixed to type C3 card-mounts as the example illustrated here.
Later, twentieth-century specimens were affixed to type E1 card-mounts or type F1 mounts. On the latter, 'Bullfight' is written as one word in the title (see st552), whereas on earlier versions it is given as two words.
