If you were wondering what Manila looked like about close to a century ago, you can stop wondering now because a Reddit post showed scanned photos of Manila in the 1930s.
According to u/skeptical, these photos that were scanned came from “mom’s friend, who got them from her uncle who passed away.”
Here are some of the photos:
Legaspi Landing with the Manila Hotel in the background
The Manila Hotel
Empress of Canada tied on Pier 5, which was considered the longest pier at that time
To see the entire album, the photos were uploaded on Flickr, under EspressoBuzz account.
