Museum Bank Mandiri, part 1

Museum Bank Mandiri has the feel of a Depression Era film set (which isn't a bad thing, mind you). There are plenty of floor tiles and wooden tables and counters. Fiona Apple could sing and dance "Paper Bag" here.

If Rizal was blond...

We watched a well-preserved 1941 color film documenting the city under Dutch rule. There was another film about Batavia, Bogor and Bandung 1927-1940. They have their own version of the children's games luksong tinik, Dr. Quack Quack and bato bato pik. It made me wonder if we have old films of Manila.
