After getting saturated with most things Bacolod, we took a fast craft to get to the other side of Negros Island where Iloilo is. The oldest of Philippine cities like Cebu almost always have dilapiated, abandoned, shell remnants of buildings (or what used to be buildings) near their ports, piers or wharves. Iloilo is no exception. This must have been used as a warehouse in its heydey.

Detail. Fleur-de-lis motifs.

Chinese characters are still etched on the surface of the concrete. The date is 1925. I noticed that most buildings around Plaza Libertad have dates on them and that most were erected in the 1920's.
