These pictures showed the contemporary landmarks of Pasig. That perhaps also the example of a vision that the rotten system tend to fail. These grain and flour silos, owned by Wellington Flour Mills, Universal Robina, and General Milling are the landmarks of industrialization specialized in the production of Flour and its by-products made unto it.
But still, the system's aloof in self improvement and contentment in foreign imports made progress as "hopeless."
Been a history, art, politics and (to some degree) economics enthusiast, I would say that there is still a need for self improvement the way this nation needs to recover its identity and modernize it.
