quezon city-75-years

Manila was getting crowded

and his military advisors

(reportedly) told Quezon that

Manila, being by the bay, was

an easy target for

bombardment by naval guns in

case of attack.

This made Quezon push

forward the idea of a totally

new city at least 15 kilometers

away from Manila Bay (beyond

the reach of naval guns).

He contacted William E.

Parsons, American architect

and planner, who had been the

consulting architect for the

islands early in the American

colonial period.
