The Search for Manila Hotel memorabilia

The Manila Hotel, on its centennial year, invites the public to participate in an exhibit at the Lobby Lounge this July to December 2012.
If you have in your possession any memorabilia of the Manila Hotel from years gone—in pictures, newspaper clippings, objects or souvenirs—you are invited to share these items in the exhibit.
Displayed items will be kept under glass cases for security and preservation.
