Ayala Avenue Mid '80s Photo

Sift through this magic chest of amazing vintage photographs! Take a peek and let them transport you back to a time almost lost forever. Discover places you've never been, or revisit the places you always thought you knew; that is until you see what these places used to look like! Travel back in time and rediscover the Philippines.

Kuha ito sa intersection ng Ayala at Makati Avenue nung mid 80's. Simpleng simple lang nun ang mga buildings dito, wala pa ang mga high-rises na napakasikip nang tignan ngayon. Wala pa rin ang mga aircon bus na bumabyahe sa Edsa at Ayala maliban lang sa asul na "Love Bus". Sikat ka na kung nakapila ka sa sakayan ng Love Bus. Kung sasakay ka naman ng ordinayong bus nandyan lang ang DM at JD Trans noon.

Masasya ang memories ko sa Makati nung maliit ako kasi halos tuwing sabado sinasama ako ng nanay ko noon sa opisina pag half day sila. --Florante Flores

This photo of Ayala Avenue was taken in the mid 80's. Compare this photo to this one that was taken in the 60's. You definitely notice a big change!

Nice photo. I always loved the '70s and the '80s. I really wanted the Philippines to be a nice place to live with clean surroundings. I think Metro Manila today looks like Los Angeles and Miami of the 1980s.
