Dito, Noon: Fort Santiago Gate

20 February 2012

I took the historical image I found here, dated 31 October 1896 and a photograph I took in August 2011 to create this composite of the front gate of this historic citadel. After it’s destruction in WWII’s Battle of Manila, restoration efforts began in the 1950s.  The location of the bridge over the moat that connects Plaza Moriones and the main part of the fort has moved since the late 1800s.

Find more “history fades” here.
