" Tutuban "

I have featured the streets of Divisoria already,
this roughly defined area is still considered to be
one of the largest bargain shopping district in town.
and in today's post,
let's visit the Tutuban shopping mall,
I think it was during the 90's when it was converted into a mall with a plethora
of affordable things and whatnot.
but little did we know, there's an interesting history behind this structure.


Tutuban was inspired by the sound of a choo-choo train,
toot-toot of the train's whistle and the place used to be part of a
railway station here in Tutuban area aka the PNR station.



By preserving its facade to this state, one can appreciate how dated
the facade looks like.



tune in for more details. ^-^

  1. This is so much nicer than the usual steel and glass malls! Excellent idea. In Paris, one of the biggest museums, Orsay, was formerly a train station as well

  2. Great history behind a very lovely building! The architecture is wonderfu :D


thanks for sharing your thoughts! :)
