This new edition contains the original text with enriched visual-- maps, postcards, engravings, sketches, and photographs-- making it a comprehensive pictorial record of Manila and its denizens through the centuries. 

It quickly grew due to the success of its CPA reviewers and the humble review center received an overwhelming number of enrollees. Its finest building was established in January of 1948 and was located at Azcarraga Street .

Tabunan is more than a simple chronicle. Drawing from his own experience and the personal stories of many fellow guerillas, Segura weaves into the book a richly detailed, many stranded narrative of men and women in war. Tabunan is a stirring narrative well-told. 

The image illustrates a typical home of a tuba gatherer. 

Cutting the stem of an unopened flower releases the sap. A handful of bark is placed inside the bamboo container before it is attached to catch the juice.

The OFI Library  is a Philippine study center with a collection of nearly 21,000 books, serials, images, and documents relating to Philippine history with some dating back to the 17th century.
 
The OFI Library produced mobile photo exhibits of Filipiniana imagery of various themes which are brought to different schools, universities, local museums, churches and other public venues in Manila as well as the provinces. Interested parties may request for these exhibits. Other exhibits featuring original library materials from the collections are held within the foundation premises.
