Postcards-Pichon Family Collection

The Pichon Family Collection was donated by the family to the UST Miguel de Benavides Library in 2017. The Pichon family came from a prominent clan in Davao Oriental.

 

The collection consists mainly of Filipiniana materials in the form of books, serials, maps and postcards that reflects the life and time of its donors.

Here are some of the postcards donated arranged by the following categories:

   

Architecture

The Philippines is teeming with architectural heritage in different regions and from different periods. One can observe in almost all towns the bahay kubo, the fusion of Fil-Hispanic architecture as seen in the bahay na bato and the enduring Spanish colonial structures. Remnants of the early American Period urban planning can still be seen some parts of Manila and cities like Baguio. These postcards, represent some of the Philippine architectural styles that have emerged through the centuries.

People and Culture

The postcards in this section depict the everyday life. Culture was a favorite subject in postcards because it reminds people of the way things used to be evoking in them a feeling of nostalgia. This section contains mundane sceneries such as women washing clothes in the river, modes of transportation that are hardly seen any more in these fast-paced day and age and the industries that once fueled the Philippine economy such as tobacco plantation and those that still persist like the hemp production in Sorsogon and sugar plantation in Negros Island.
