Man this series makes no fucking sense
this pic is crucial
Ok. I wanna cry, because I just saw this for the first time. Sharing this to you all, the short video clip of the July 4, 1946 celebration at Luneta, Manila, Philippines inaugurating the United States’ recognition of the independence of the Philippines. Seen here is Gen. Douglas MacArthur and U.S. High Commissioner Paul McNutt. There is even a rare scene in the video of the Philippine flag being raised and the American flag being lowered down. That same flagpole where the flag was raised was the same flagpole—known as the Independence Flagpole—in front of the Rizal monument, facing Manila Bay. The grandstand we see here where the people sat, was a temporary one set up between the Independence Flagpole and the Rizal monument.
Awesome stuff. Thank you British Pathe!
