PRETTY FILIPINA in a PHILIPPINE PHOTO STUDIO
I bought this 1920s image because she looked just like a sweet and friendly Filipina bar girl I once knew in Okinawa, Japan. As a photo historian, archivist, and curator of my own Flickr exhibitions, such factors are of paramount importance when deciding what images to acquire.... ;-) On a more serious and interesting note, please see Elmer's educational comments at # 6 below, as well as his notes in the photo itself ! Thanks, Elmer.
A very busy Pasig River, Manila, Philippines, Early 20th Century
A time when convinces were few but life was good. Look into the picture to see all the different actives. Do you see the young boy jumping into the river with legs crossed and arms out? Underwood & Underwood
