The oldest of Philippine cities almost always have dilapiated, abandoned, shell remnants of buildings (or what used to be buildings) near their ports, piers or wharves. Iloilo is no exception. This must have been used as a warehouse in its heydey.

Detail. Fleur-de-lis motifs.

Chinese characters are still etched on the surface of the concrete. The date is 1925. I noticed that most buildings around Plaza Libertad have dates on them and that most were erected in the 1920's.
