Beautiful! I've never seen Manila so clean! Tondo was a premier place with the finest business buildings. And had "skyscrapers"! Pasig River was teeming with life. People wore beautiful clothes. Even kalesa drivers wore long sleeved polos! Beautiful trees still lined the streets. My grandfather was 16 when this was shot. I could just imagine how teenagers were back then. My grandma was 9. Markets were so clean! Carvings and statues on Jones Bridge were absolutely stunning!
I wish we could make Manila (and the whole Philippines) like this again.
