Miquel Brunet Miquel was born on 6th January, Twelfth Night, 1919, at number 21, paseo Antonio Maura in Manacor – now number 17, Passeig de Na Camel·la, the name of the original estate urbanized at the beginning of the Twentieth Century, an avenue which however, at that time and nowadays, has always been called s’Alameda, in the Mallorcan vernacular. He was born in the house his parents had built before they were married, and he still lives there. He arrived in the little world of Manacor at the same time as many abandoned the town. Those were the particularly important years of emigration. The Liberal Francesc Gomila Vadell was Mayor at the time. And electricity had been installed in the town only a few years before by the company La Energía Manacorina”.
