Unimart Photo 1977

Time is frozen in a single frame of film. Every bit of detail is perfectly captured by the camera lens. These photos take us back to those wonderful days when everything seemed so fresh and new, those days we wished would last forever. Relive those special moments in your life, and share your memories with Photo Nostalgia!

This photo was taken right next to the T-shirt Iron-on Station counter, (where you would choose an Iron-on design to be hot-pressed onto your shirt), and right next to that would be the Big Weighing Scale. This is an amazing photo, as it perfectly captures how most people remember Unimart in '70s Greenhills.

Many thanks to our friend Kuya Geezer of www.skyscrapercity.com who shared this amazing photo with us.

Send your old photos and memories to: nostalgiamanilamail[at]yahoo[dot]com, write "Photo Nostalgia" on the subject line, and we'll feature it here on Photo Nostalgia.

I'm not sure if it was at Unimart but I remember when we were kids, my mom would buy my sister and I t-shirts where you could pick the design so they can iron it on. I'd have to found those pics.

To Lissa,

If you read the photo's caption, it says that this photo was taken right next to that Iron-on station you're talking about.

Aahh Unimart! Do any of you remember the unimart of yore; where the school supplies are sold; on the back wall are life sized cartoon paintings (or cut outs?)of basketball players? The cafeteria had illustrations/info of the solar system? There were stalls that sold pink cotton candy(sugar flavor pa lang- no grape or cherry pa), cinnamon rolls, camaron etc. I know i didnt just imagine them but my siblings dont remember anymore. Mga damo pa ang nakapaligid sa Unimart then. -Bea
