The Escolta, Manila

12 May 2011

This American Mutoscope and Biograph (1903) was filmed by the Renovare Company for the film archives of the Academy of Motion Picture Art and Sciences. This clip, which does not have audio, captures the busy street of Escolta (the on-screen title was misspelled) at the turn of the century with its horse-drawn buses, caromatas and caritelas.
