While growing up, I really thought that this is the facade of the cathedral. Apparently not. However, back then, we would get off the tricycle in this area (there was still a Petron gas station on the corner of Magsaysay and De Vera Sts.) or near Pilot school.
During the late ’80s or early ’90s, new commercial buildings were built beside the apostles. At first, I really didn’t care; but now, I realized that young ones couldn’t appreciate the site of the cathedral anymore.
