    Default Dumaguete circa 1945

    A shot of what is now the Unitop bldg. One from the Matiao Hardware view, the other looking past what is now McD.

    The other is Japanese surrendering in Negros Occidental

    Travel Time, were you in the Army here in 1945 when you took those pictures?
    Just kidding, enjoyed seeing how things looked back then. Thank you for sharing.

    Not a single Vehicle besides the Carabao Cart, I heard some stories from long time Expatriates that even as recent as 1990, there was very little traffic in Negros...

    The Park Theater building didn't change until about 5 years ago when Unitop came to town. We used to go to the theatre on occasion, P40 each for the expensive seats.
