Viva Filipinas!

Viva Filipinas is a repository of vintage photos about life in the Philippines. Some of the photos date back as early as the 1890s, further spanning two World Wars and various eras.

These fotos lasted this long for a reason. Well-kept and loved by their owners, and then lost in some event, fate reclaims their worth and they end up online.

With posterity and history at its side, these fotos have their own special kind of value- they show us the old life, a documentation of the Filipino through the ages.
