A Look at the Past

Post by bogart on Tue Jul 01, 2008 11:42 am

Sabi nga, "ang hindi marunong lumingon sa pinanggalingan, hindi makararating sa paroroonan." what a better way to look into the past than by the pictures they left behind... please post as many "old philippines" or "old manila" pictures as you can... bounce

to start with... for all you makati residents, did you knw that ayala ave and paseo de roxas used to be runways? yes, airport runways!



the large tarmac is now ayala ave. the runway is paseo. Smile


this is cubao then... no traffic and one can park sa gilid with ease! the shell station is mcdo na now...
