I have often wondered why there was a door from the then school room next to the church that won't open. Now I know and thats

These Spanish buildings are proof of Carigara's advanced society. At the time of Chirino's arrival,1595, Carigara was the
most demographically advanced settlement in the Visayas, perhaps surpassed only by Cebu. This was how a jesuit described it

This picture brings back memories of my boyhood in the late 40's early 50's.I know the guy who played the Giant, a big but

Looking at this picture the shoreline was very close to the Gawas En Harigi building and deep. This must be when the original
Salog Kalgara was flowing on its original route and unobstructed and also when Carigara was the capital of Leyte. This is
also proof that our town was the center of commerce back then.There were three big presses for bailing abaca, which were operating

The opening of the national highway, however, resulted in the decline of business.
Santa Cruz, there are three of them, the configuration do not look like the one in Exaltacion St. in Ponong so this must be
either in Sawang but most the one on Calle Real in Baybay, although the surrounding houses do not configure with the paintings
of Real St. houses on the left.
Another medium used in the above pictures and that is the use of Crayola.
To those not in the know, this pulpit depicted here was on the right side aisle second post from the altar. This was where
the sermon was delivered prior to the advent of the loud speaker. Rumor has it that a priest delivering his homily on adultery,
when his woman sitting close to the pulpit felt guilty and whispered “An aton Padre?” and the priest whispered
back ”An ato sigue la”.
Looking closely at this painting you can not help but notice the paddle like object on the teachers right hand. I surmise
this is a persuader used to discipline unruly kids.
