A video of pre-WWII Manila

Posted on

Here’s another lovely video of pre-war Manila. Take note how lovely Avenida Escolta (in Santa Cruz, Manila) used to be. That place was then the equivalent of today’s Macati Business District. And the tranvía made it more distinct, giving it a “San Francisco, California” feel. Although the video was recorded during the American period, traces of our Hispanic past was very and strongly visible.
