  1. Thank you for these pictures. I appreciate the effort you put into posting these. These pictures are not readily available to Mindanaoans like myself who are a bit out of touch with history.

  2. Good afternoon.

    I'm looking for some old photos of Mindanao, which we can use for a showcase on this Island in terms of trade, investment and tourism. I found some of your photos here useful for this project of a foundation based in Davao City.

    Please let me know if I can use a few of these photos and what my responsibilities would be in terms of IPR.

    Thank you.
