Have you ever wondered how Makati looked like twenty years ago, in 1993?
Yes, you - Makati professionals who just go through the usual grind every day. Or those who frequent Ayala and Makati Avenue on weekends! Or those just curious about how this city looked like before.
Just to give context on the path that the car took: the car is obviously coming from Fort Bonifacio via McKinley Avenue and about to cross EDSA. It then traversed Ayala Avenue then took a right to Makati Avenue, drove a bit further (crossing Gil Puyat/Buendia), then took a U-Turn. It then traversed on Makati Avenue then took a right to Pasay Road until it reached Pasong Tamo/Chino Roces Ave.
Some things we noticed:
- No MRT, there are jeepneys plying through EDSA.
- Shell station has been there ever since (EDSA cor Ayala Ave/Mckinley).
- Just Rustans, no Glorietta yet
- 6750 has been there ever since???
- Manila Peninsula doesn't have the twin waterfalls yet
- See all those yellow cabs?:)
- No Ayala Triangle yet
- LandMark still had the open parking lot adjacent to it (where the Link stands now)
- There's no such place as Greenbelt 3,4,5 yet
- There was a Caltex Station on where The Columns stands now
- No Skyway ramp yet!
- Makati Cinema Square and Plaza Fair was still the place to be before. No Little Tokyo yet nor Beacon tower.
