Images taken from the oldest surviving film shot in Guadalajara (it could even be the first filming made in our land). This incunabula is preserved in the Spanish Film Library and includes the morning walk through the Aerostation Polygon carried out on March 26, 1904 by the procession headed by a young monarch, Alfonso XIII, still single and on the throne only since 1902. In the information provided by the newspaper The region four days later it is reported that a photographer named Monasterio (perhaps Francisco Monasterio, active in Madrid at the time) impressed a film of the group surrounding the King. It is, for now, the only film shot in Guadalajara before 1926 that has been able to be recovered.
