Philippines History in Photos

old_cebu05

Cebu Railway is now history like the photo above but if the two congressmen and their constituents will have their way, a new Light Rail Transport System will be constructed along the eastern part of the island. House bill no. 310 was filed by Congressman Eduardo R. Gullas while House Bill no. 432 creating the the Cebu Light Rail Transport was filed by Congressman Raul V. Del Mar.

 

 

I was looking for something else and came across this photo so thought I should add it. Then I thought what about a lot of the other historical information that really needs to be put online for others to see. So I have collected some photos and snippits of information and added them here.

This will no doubt be an article I edit and re-edit as I find new photos to add. I find researching the history of the Philippines especially Cebu fascinating since so much of it is hidden away showing a past that seems to have been more structured than today. But most lost during WWII destroyed by the Japanese.

    Wow. Where did you find this great historical stuff? I have been thinking about adding something like this to my website or possibly making a whole blog devoted to just this stuff. I haven’t really looked around online much.

    Don’t worry I won’t just copy your stuff. 😎  Really great stuff.
