Litratong Pinoy: Gusali (building)

ruins of Cine Corregidor

Litrato ng mga gumuhong gusali sa Corregidor na binomba ng mga Hapon noong World War II. Ito ang natitira sa gusali ng Cine Corregidor na itinayo bago pa magsimula ang giyera at naging libangan ng mga Amerikanong sundalo at ng kanilang pamilya na naka-station sa isla.


Photos of the ruins in Corregidor, buildings destroyed by Japanese bombs during World War II. This is what remains of the Cine Corregidor that was erected before the war to cater to the entertainment needs of American soldiers and their families who were stationed in the island.



Ito naman ang nawasak na mga gusali ng dating Headquarters at Chapel ng USAFFE, at ng katabi nitong Bachelor Officers Quarters. Kahindik-hindik man ang mga pangyayari sa mga gusaling ito, kailangan nating balikan at h'wag kalimutan na ang mga ito ay bahagi ng ating kasaysayan. Sila ang magpapaalala sa atin sa kung ilang libong buhay na ibinuwis para makamtan natin ang kalayaan.

These are the ruins of the former Headquarters and Chapel of the USAFFE, and it's next door neighbor, the Bachelor Officers Quarters. However horrible the events that took place in these buildings, let's not forget that these ruins are part of our history. Let them stand as a reminder of the thousands of lives lost defending and taking our freedom back.

it's good that you indicated what those buildings used to be. a normal post on corregidor only tells that those are ruins.

Ahaha ok lang me hardin pa din kahit paano :D At talagang nakakatuwa ang series mo na ito....

Okay lang yan, Luna. Advance post mo na ito at next week, ang hardin theme naman ang i-post mo!*lol* Itong mga ruins na ito ay katulad din nung mga French villa na sinira din ng mga Khmer Rouge sa Cambodia. Nakaka-kilabot kasi makikita mo pa ang bakas ng mga tama ng bala at kung ano-ano pa.

Magandang pagkakuha yung unang letrato. Very well preserved as part of our Philippine history.
