MANILA, Philippines - While restoration of the Army and Navy Club is in progress, Museo ng Maynila will open its doors. Its galleries on the ground floor are now open to the public.

Museo ng Maynila inaugurates its reopening with ?Maynila Noon: The Curt Teich Postcard Collection, 1922-1949,? 9 a.m. -4 p.m., Monday-Friday, until Dec. 31.

Images on exhibit are from the Curt Teich Postcard Archives, which has the largest private collection of postcards in the US. The company, the world?s largest postcard printer, was in existence from 1898 to 1978.

Curt Teich Company donated rare and unpublished images of Manila that have not been published or exhibited in the Philippines. The postcards on exhibit, photos taken from 1922-1949 when Manila was known as the Pearl of the Orient, offer a rare glimpse of Manila?s youthful days during another era.

Curt Teich is no stranger to Manila. The company opened for local business in 1898 when American troops landed in the Philippines. In fact, the images are vintage American colonial. The American flag is seen flying over many landmarks that once symbolized Spanish supremacy.

The postcards journey through Manila, picking up images of the people, their streets, parks, churches, hotels, schools, and landmarks such as Fort Santiago, Escolta, Avenida Rizal. Of interest are images of the Luneta cluster of classic American colonial buildings that survive today: the Army and Navy Club, Manila Hotel, the Elks Club.

Admission to Museo ng Maynila is free.
