More photos of Old Manila... along the banks of Pasig River...

By the way, "Tagalog" is derived from the words "taga ilog" or inhabitants by the river. The river referred to is the Pasig River




ESCOLTA
The Philippines' premiere business and financial district... in 1899.

This is in Makati, That's the old IBM building and beside it was the old RCPI bldg. This picture was taken in the area where Manila Penn now stands. I'm sure, my dad use to work for IBM.)

By RMN: The lovely building on the far right is the Dona Narcisa de Leon (yes, Dona Sisang of LVN) Building designed by Gabriel Formoso that has long since been torn-down in favor of the Equitable-PCI Bank Tower.

Power-Mad: That would be from left, IBM ; RCPI and the Dona Narcisa de Leon Building. Doinks didn't specify if IBM and RCPI were just tenants and if these are the actual names of the buildings themselves.

Farmer's Market in Makati 1973



I'm surprised how good these pictures are taken back in 1973. Notice the cars below are indeed back in the early 70's.

I really wish I could go back in time and see these places again... if only we could get it back to how beautiful it was back then. sigh!

This also reminds me of a baby photography thesis i was supposed to do, "The Lost City of Manila".  Concept was that I would find hidden architectural gems that still stand today and place it side by side with the really older pictures.

Nice thread.  Keep it comin'!

Jepoy, I think some of those pics are from my dad. He's a photographer before. :) I saw some from his files way back.  Anyway, these are awesome boss! If you can get a before and after that will be cool. Hahaha!

wow ang ganda ng EDSA nun and so as Manila. Too bad the govt isnt as anal as it should be when it comes to preserving history. I think now is too late.

manila could have been the europe of south east asia... sayang... now pag nag lrt ako passing central terminal station... makikita mo ang ganda ng manila. may pagasa pa naman, the government and the people just have to understand the value of what we have...

the original city planning of manila can be foungdi think in the national library... and pag nalaman nyo yung plano manghihinayang tlga kayo and maiinis kung bkt di naging ganun ang kinalabasan ng manila.
