100 Years of Baguio City

A big thank you to mason28viz for posting this on Youtube. As a city, Baguio turned 100 years old this year.

My dad grew up in Baguio. In 2006 he and Baguio City High School Class of 1956 celebrated their 50th Golden Jubilee. He and his company were among the rescuers during the major earthquake that destroyed the historic Pines Hotel. We have a photo of him and his colleagues with then-President Fidel Ramos at Malacanang Palace.

I thought he might enjoy this video, as you all might :)
