Carriedo St. in Sta. Cruz, Manila.
Carriedo... hmmm...my bespren says that Carriedo was named after the philanthropist Don Francisco Carriedo y Perredo. Now, according to the story, Don Carriedo donated a lot of his money so that Manila will have a clean water system. Now how's that for a nice guy?
Also in these photos is the statue of Arsenio Lacson, the first Mayor of Manila, the Old Monte De Pieda location (Now occupied by the Bank of the Philippine Island) , Santa Crush Church and some of those old gravestones, Jones Bridge and a replica of the Carriedo fountain (the original is said to be in the office of the MWSS.)
