A DIVISORIA TREASURE


One of the last remaining beauty on C.M. Recto. Mom said ELPO was a famous shoe brand back then, a direct competitor of Converse.

Thanks for sharing this pic. This building has always attracted my attention in the aesthetically-challeged Recto Avenue.

Loved the Art-Deco details!

it definitely attracts anyone despite the mess all over the place. I had to muster courage to come up to it and take photos. Irresistable!

That is a lovely building. I sure hope someone doesn't get the bright idea that it should go the way of the Avenue Theater and be turned into a parking lot. Do you know who built it?

Very historic building, and the details of its art are very impressive. What is the use of it now?

Ms Mila, unfortunately I don't. It's difficult to get details of things. I am sure Carlos Celdran knows.

Bernadette, like many old buildings in this part of Manila, this one is a - tadaaan! - warehouse. Ang saya saya talaga.
