More Visitors at Boinas Elósegui

Needless to say, I wasn't the first visitor at the Boinas Elósegui factory. In it's 159 years of existence, the company has seen many famous (and some infamous) people visiting the factory and leaving their mark in the company's visitors books.
Here are the books, taken from the safe, looking for interesting autographs. 
This signature is a personal favourite, from Pablo Casals, one of the greatest cellists of all time and an ardent supporter of the Spanish Republican government. After its defeat, Casals vowed not to return to Spain until democracy was restored (he didn't live to see it, unfortunately).
Below another interesting signature, from the very man who Casals fled for: the Generalissimo Francisco Franco himself, dated 19 September 1941.
