Memories of the Ermita District, Manila

Living in Manila in the Fifties and early Sixties was an adventure as well as a treat for me. Manila was still rebuilding itself from the damages of war. I still can recall seeing sunken ships out on Manila Bay when they were slowly being removed or perhaps made part of the reclamation of more land around Dewey Boulevard (Roxas Blvd.) The wide boulevard was not choked with traffic as today nor decorated with garishly colored bright lights.
