Reckon you would have to ask Smokey. He's the oldest guy I know on the Forums. I would guess the native huts in the picture probably inspired him to build his house.

You are correct, that is when I earned my first 1887, Morgan silver dollar!

This topic could have been posted upstairs, actually. 

 

I will wait for Bob to see this, and see if he wishes to move it. I would have no problem with it, though. 

 

I guess the cultural forum would work. 

Beautiful images, really.

I'd guess they are the work of Eduardo Masferré.

 

I wouldn't have any objection to moving this thread although a more classy title may be in order.

Guess this will be off topic, but it is about the country. I just learned over the weekend that the Philippines 1st president, Manuel Quezon, along with some cigar makers from Cincinatti, the high comissioner, and Col Dwight Eisenhower, arranged for the Shindlers List Jews to immigrate to the Philippines. this after they had been in China and due to Japan's alliance with germany, they had to leave there.

Also, in the 1st vote in Nov 1947 for a Jewish state, the Philippines cast the tiebreaking vote for Israel.

PBS made a documentary called Rescue in the Philippines.

These photos just reminded me of this and thought I'd post it-sorry I'm in wrong place.

Not sure if the vote you refer to was a tie breaking vote.  Below are a couple of citations which describe the vote in a different light.  The first is from the Philippines Embassy website in Israel.  The second is a basic wikipedia reference.


 


 


The Philippines supported the UN Resolution 181 on the partition of Palestine and the Creation of the State of Israel in 1947:


The Philippines was the ONLY Asian country to support the creation of the State of Israel. On 29 November 1947, 33 countries voted in favor of the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 creating the State of Israel. The thirty three countries are Australia, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Byelorussian SSR, Canada, Costa Rica, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, France, Guatemala, Haiti, Iceland, Liberia, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Sweden, South Africa, Ukrainian SSR, United States of America, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, Uruguay, and Venezuela.


On 28 November 2007, the Israeli Parliament (Knesset) honored the thirty three countries which supported the UN General Assembly 181 in celebration of 60th Anniversary of the State of Israel.


The Philippine commitment to this cause is still embedded in our hearts as we co-sponsored the UN resolution to mark 27 January, a yearly commemorative day to honor the victims of the Holocaust.


 


 


Philippines (Vote: For): In the days before the vote, the Philippines' representative General Carlos P. Romulo stated "We hold that the issue is primarily moral. The issue is whether the United Nations should accept responsibility for the enforcement of a policy which is clearly repugnant to the valid nationalist aspirations of the people of Palestine. The Philippines Government holds that the United Nations ought not to accept such responsibility". After a phone call from Washington, the representative was recalled and the Philippines' vote changed.
