TARRASA. Accion de 250 Pts. green, black. No 847. Tarrasa is an industrial town, especially for textiles, inland from Barcelona. This company was formed there in 1841 to supply water to the town. The late 18th and early 19th centuries were a time of water-supply crisis in many European cities and towns, where the rapid increase in population and industry led to an increase in demand that the traditional suppliers could not meet. Tarrasa was one of the first cities to establish a modern company to meet the need. This was, and still is, that company. This decorative share, dated 1896, is of art nouveau/Jugendstil design, shows a fish and water-liles, and the arms of Tarrasa.
