Manila - The most Beautiful City in Asia 1950's to the mid 1970's

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.

Pedestrian Lanes

From Bogart the Explorer from Davao City

Pedestrian Lanes were ancient land bridges marked by white stripes to grant safe passage for fragile creatures called Pedestrians (Walangis autosis) on highly dangerous roads.

However, Pedestrians evolved, or should I say, devolved into undisciplined maniacs and crossed roads beyond the boundaries and safety of the Pedestrian Lane spawning a new species called The Jaywalker (Bawaltumawidis nakamamatayis)

As time passed, Pedestrian lanes were forgotten and have slowly faded away in history. Some evidence to their existence can still be found in the urban jungle such as this one here that has been blocked by a center island wall...
