OFF TOPIC--Looking for info on Bergara Municipal Fronton

This is about Mano. I would be interested in historical information on Bergara Municipal Fronton.


Will link directly below (1948 Manista Final)

One of the Mundial Parejas (the major professional Mano doubles tournament) matches was played at Bergara last weekend. In preliminary research for blog links to the fronton, I found out Bergara Municipal is an historic venue.

The fronton opened in 1885 (6 years before the oldest North Basque Trinquet I know of, Saint Palais, opened). Indoor sports arenas in continuous use for that long are extremely rare. The only older one I know of is the Pelayo Trinquet in Valencia (1868).

Questions for anyone who might be able to help me.

1. Is this the oldest Fronton in the Basque country? Oldest short court fronton?
2. Has it been used continuously since its opening?
3. Whose picture is on the back wall?
4. Anything else that is unique about it.

Thanks to anyone who has any information.
