Welcome Google visitors! If you're looking for old Manila pictures from the 1950s to the 1970s, you've come to the right place.

You'll see a collection of nostalgic photos when Manila was in its heyday. Just a quick note, I don't take credit for these photos. Somebody just sent them to me and I felt that it was important that I share it in the hopes that other people will see how beautiful Manila was and hopefully help bring it back to its former glory.

Manila when it was the most beautiful city in Asia in the 1950s to 1970s

The photos must have been taken in different years, from the mid 1950's to the mid 1960's, judging from the car models (though some cars are pre 1950'd). Where is O'Henry's Coffee and Donut shop in Plaza Sta Cruz (Plaza near Escolta & Reina Regente)?

Can you recognize the cars? Chevy Bel-air 1958, Simca 1961-62s, Toyopet 1960s, VW Beetle 1960's, early 1960's Mercedez Benz 220...

Amazing Act Of Sportsmanship

Mitchell Marcus is manager of his school’s basketball team, the Coronado High School Thunderbirds. Due to a developmental disability he’s never been able to take part in a game. However, for the last game of the season, his coach Pete Morales told him to suit up. He didn’t expect to actually play, but just wearing the jersey with his teammates was a thrill in itself.

Mitchell didn't know but coach Morales was going to put him in the game at the end of the fourth quarter, regardless of the score. With just over a minute left, Mitchell was put onto the court for the first time, and set up shop near the net. His teammates passed him the ball a number of times, but he was never able to make a basket. During his last attempt, the ball went out of bounds. With just seconds left in the game, it looked like he wouldn’t get another chance.

Then, one of the finest acts of sportsmanship you’ll ever see occurred.

Watch.
