81. FILIPINA BEAUTIES on Old Real Photo Postcards

There is a saying that “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” which means that beauty is relative. One person's definition of beauty is will always different from someone else's definition. Webster defined BEAUTY as the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind, whether arising from sensory manifestations. 

I am sharing these vintage postcards of beautiful Filipinas back then.  Their beauty was captured by  camera and was preserved in time. There are many photos like these that were stored in albums just waiting to be discovered and admired.  All of these are real photo postcards circa 1910-1930s. I hope you will enjoy looking at them like I did. 


  1. Maraming salamat. Napakagandang pagmasdan ang mga lumang larawan ng ating mga ninuno. Napakayaman ng kasaysayan ng ating bansang sinilangan. Ang Pilipinas.Mabuhay.

  2. Salamat. Magaling at maganda ang pinanggalingan natin.

  3. I'm interested on the history of how this collection came about. How initially compiled it, was it taken from old defunct studios? Because it seems that way (otherwise the collection would've had varied pictures and subjects).
