The history of Philippines:
Philippines is an island country located in Southeast Asia. The Spain fleet arrived at the Philippines for the first time as a European in the 16th century, and Spain made the Philippines the base of the Asia advance. The Philippine Islands was made into the Spain territory in the Zaragoza treaty in 1529. After that, Independence movement broke out by Jose Rizal's activity made into the father of independence of the Philippines at the end of the 19th century, and the first republic of the Philippines was achieved independence in the midst of Spanish American war. However, the supreme power of the Philippines was transferred to the United States from Spain by Paris Convention in 1898. Then, although put under occupation of Japan from the United States by World War II, by Manila treaty of the postwar in 1946, the organization of the Philippines Commonwealth was succeeded and the third republic of the Philippines promised from prewar days re-became independent.

Another excellent collage from your photo workshop. I like the collection of different subjects, from the nice beach up to busy port.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice week.

Old stuff well rendered, Mikio.
The beach scenery looks just a digital photo, greatly preserved photo. The picture with the harbour in scenery, with many vessels anchor and wait for their turn in port, is most impressive.

This is a fine set of photos from the Philippines. I have never been there but I guess much of this has changed in the more than 25 years that have passed. The large picture at the top has lost a lot of its original colours but the other ones have stayed in a very good condition and are nicely scanned.

A very varied collection of pictures. Quite a good idea to present so many photos at the same time with such different motives as here.

This is a lovely collage of four historic photos from Manila and surroundings. I especially like the one from Cavite which displays interesting vehicles.
