    Great photos! They make me wish I had lived at that time!If I could travel back in time! If only some of these areas–such as Escolta, Binondo, Hidalgo, parts of Pasig, etc–had been protected and preserved as heritage sites, and integrated into an ecologically planned city of Manila (the way European cities were planned and rebuilt after WWII)!!!
    Thanks for posting the photos, and best regards to Butch Zialcita.
