Do you have old pictures of Baler?

1939 - Inside the Baler Church
1939 - Inside the Baler Church

This photo was from Mr. Rollie Querijero. It was a group shot of a Flores de Mayo entourage taken inside Baler Church. In May 1939. It has so many details that a historian could learn many things just from this one photo. You might have pictures like this hidden in your Kak-ka’s baul. Bring them to light, have them scanned and give them a second life. That’s why photographs were invented, for the memories. Post it on your facebook page or send it to me at batangbaler at gmail dot com.

One of the most viewed photo album in my Facebook account is this collection of old photos from Baler and Aurora collected from the web, old books and magazines and from Balerians like Poppo Olag and Mrs. Mesina. Some photos from this collection have made it to exhibits at the National Library, NCCA, Malacañang and The Museo De Baler. If you want to add pictures to this collection, then start digging.
