This building is located at Muelle del Banco Nacional (north bank of the Pasig River) about a block away from the MacArthur (Santa Cruz) Bridge. The street you see in the recent photo going to the left leads to Calle Escolta.

That’s about the only things I can say about this building as I haven’t been able to find any information about it anywhere. If there’s anyone out there who can point me to the right direction, I’d appreciate it if he/she does.

Note on the use of the old photograph:

    ate, the other corner ang photo mo, dapat dun ka sa maliit na tulay banda nag shot. Kasi ang alam ko, yan estero doon sa likod may malaking lumang building, dun galing ang shot. Ok ba? salamat sa mga pix mo, nag-enjoy ako. Alam ko ang mga lugar kasi fro San Nicolas ako. Mahilig din ako sa mga lumang pix. At sayang yung mga Old Spanish Houses na nagiba na. Anyways, CONGRATS! Ang galing mo!
