Having determined the characteristics of the images that make up the photographic file, the methodological study of the documentary groups of which they form part -funds or collections-, applying the basic archival principle of respect for the origin according to their producer, a theoretical foundation that governs the organisation of any documentary fund or collection, has led to resultthe correct identification and delimitation of the following:
