What about a time travel to the year 1900? This August, a photo exhibition presented by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) brings back to life the colonial past of the Philippines.

Old pictures depict the everyday life on the archipelago more than a hundred years ago, during the end of the Spanish era, the Philippine struggle for independence, and the arrival of the Americans.

The photographs in the exhbition 'The Philippines at the Turn of the Century' come from the Collection of Bernardita R. Churchill, donated by the Smithsonian Institution and the Philippine Arts, Letters and Media Council (Washington, D.C.).

The NCCA is the 'overall policy making body, coordinating, and grants giving agency for the preservation, development and promotion of Philippine arts and culture', as stated on its website.
