ILOILO CELEBRATION

The re-dedication of Carpenter’s Bridge in Iloilo City, Panay, Philippine Islands, is a month-long event in the city.  The old Bridge is along  a linear park, developed as part of a flood control work.   A number of banners are posted on lamp posts on the Bridge telling the story of Carpenter’s life and legacy in the Philippines.  See the one above which shows him with a number of others who worked at the same time in the American occupation.

Here’s what the Bridge looks like now…..
