HISTORICAL MARKERS IN THE SIXTH DISTRICT OF MANILA
Transcript of HISTORICAL MARKERS IN THE SIXTH DISTRICT OF MANILA
Nagtahan Bridge, Pandacan, Manila The logo of the National Historical Institute is unfinished
There is a missing screw on the upper right part of the inscription.
A typographical error was seen: “pinanganlang” must be “pinangalanang”
The light bulb on top of the inscription is missing. According to the people living near the bridge, it was stolen
The “statue” on top of the inscription is unclean, and there are vandals surrounding the inscription.
The marker is not noticeable since the marker and the inscription have the same gray paint.
CLASSIFICATION: POOR La Concordia College for Girls
Herran St., Paco, Manila Philippine Lawyer’s Association
Malacanang, Manila The group was not permitted to go inside
the location for security purposes.
Polytechnic University of the Philippines
Sta. Mesa, Manila The group was not allowed to go inside the library because a seminar was being held that time.
Historical marker is difficult to find. It should be somewhere people can easily notice it. Maria Paz Mendoza-Guazon
Island Park, Pres. Quirino Ave., Pandacan, Manila
THERE’S NO MARKER LEFT.
THE PLACE WAS DIRTY.
THE SPACE WHICH SHOULD BE FILLED BY THE MARKER WAS NOW FULL OF VANDALS.
THE MARKER SHOULD BE REPLACED WITH A NEW ONE. Lord Justo Ukon Takayama
Plaza Dilao, Paco, Manila THE MARKERS ARE STILL THERE, COMPLETE WITH BOTH OF ITS JAPANESE AND ENGLISH TRANSLATIONS.
THE PLACE SHOULD BE KEPT CLEAN AND TOURIST-FRIENDLY.
CLASSIFICATION: GOOD Church of Dilao-Paco
Church of Dilao site, Paco, Manila THE RESIDENTS TOLD US THAT IT BECAME AN AGLIPAY CHURCH.
A HISTORICAL LANDMARK SHOULD NOT BE REMOVED OR BE REPLACED BY ANYTHING BECAUSE IT HAS A CULTURAL AND A HISTORICAL IMPORTANCE. La Ignacia
Herran St., Sta. Ana, Manila THE MARKER WAS WRECKED BECAUSE OF THE CONSTRUCTION OF A BUILDING.
IT SHOULD BE REPLACED WITH A NEW MARKER. A comma should be placed after the name Katigbak.
The logo of NHI is rusty.
Though it is placed in the main building of the school,
the marker is still not noticeable; shrubs and plants somehow obscure the marker.
Simbahan ng Birhen Penafrancia
Paco, Manila The marker is located beside the door where church-goers can see it right away.
The place surrounding the marker is quite neat.
The color of the background and text ARE good. However, the text itself is quite confusing. It is composed of three long sentences that branch off to different thoughts thus diminishing the clarity of its content.
Simbahan ng Pandacan
Pandacan Church facade, Pandacan, Manila
The historical marker should be mounted in a more accessible location.
The place is well-maintained outside, though there were some missing windows.
The text should be painted white so as to make it more readable.
There was a grammar issue on the text: NASIRA would be more appropriate than NASIRAAN.
The historical marker failed to mention that the Pandacan Church is also Sto. Niño Parish.
We were not able to make an inventory inside the church due to unavailability of a person-in-charge to accommodate us.
CLASSIFICATION: AVERAGE Apolinario Mabini (inscription inside the shrine)
Mabini Shrine, Pandacan, Manila The shrine was relocated to PUP from Pandacan, Manila. (We just found it incidentally when we went to our last stop which was PUP.)
The place was not operational yet.
The marker is quite good in condition. It provides a comprehensive background about Apolinario Mabini as well as about the house.
CLASSIFICATION: GOOD Padre Jacinto Zamora
Zamora St., Pandacan, Manila There were some white marks around the historical marker placed under Padre Zamora's stone figure (left).
The plaza can be considered clean, neat, and landscaped well, especially with the presence of trees.
The plaza is not accessible to tourists because it is situated within a cramped area of private middle-class homes.
The historical marker placed near the open entrance (right) was able to give a concise background on Padre Zamora. It is more comprehensive (in terms of recounting Padre Zamora’s role in Philippine history) than the historical marker mentioned earlier.
There were some rusty parts in both historical markers.
