Museo ng Maynila and the refurbishing of the century-old Army and Navy Club building.

Today the 2nd January 2008 is my Natal Day.

From Pampanga where I resided, I went to an office in Roxas Blvd for some business matters which I expedite. Afterwards I visited the Museo ng Maynila which is housed in the century-old building of Army and Navy Club.

With the permission of the nice and pretty Lady Officer-In-Charge of the Museo ng Maynila, I was allowed to take some photos inside the building. Unfortunately some of the photos I took were too dark owing perhaps the lighting is not enough or my Digital Camera lenses is not appropriate for indoor shots. Anyhow here is some of the few photos which were good enough.

The lady Officer-In-charge was kind and friendly and she provided me with CD with photos of the Museo ng Maynila during the American era and the Curt Teich postcards Collection.
