Old Philippines: Ayuntamiento

This is the Ayuntamiento Building sometime in the early 1900s, all festooned with the Stars & Stripes possibly for the 4th of July celebrations. the building was the headquarters of the Civil Government at that time.


This is what's left of it. The building was destroyed in World War II during the Battle of Manila and never rebuilt. It is now just a shell, and being used as a parking lot. The Ayuntamiento is located next to the Manila Cathedral in Intramuros. Too bad they didn't rebuild the Ayuntamiento Building. You can clearly see its original lines today.
