    My fond memories of EDSA in the mid-1970s was riding in a JD bus.

    Yeah...me too! Who would also forget the white DM Transit plying Monumento-Balclaran/EDSA?

    Yang picture na showing Meralco & Philcomcen Bldg., is the place where the present Robinson's Galeria stands right now. Nu'ng araw talahiban yan. At sa gabi, madilim yang portion na yan.

    DM Transit, the original Killer Bus... yung DM nga was given a definition na Demonyo Magmaneho.

    JD ba yung lawanit ang pangsara ng windows? yung kulay red na bus?

    and yung picture nung taxi, ung 40/20....P0.40 ang flagdown, then P0.20 na patak ng metro.

    As I recall yes. We used to ride it when I went to Letran in intramuros waaaay back hehehe. Lawanit lahat, pati body ata eh. The seats were very spartan, kahoy lang ang back support.

    Sir.... mukhang service road ata yung nasa kanan. Malapad ang EDSA. Noon ata eh umabot pa ata ng 5 lanes each (both ways), nung wala na yung serv. road. Pero di ko na inabot yang may service road sa EDSA.

    And yung uniform ng mga konduktora yung pink na palda at blusa. Nangingintab sa almirol. Plantsado....unat na unat, at ubod ng tigas!

    Yung bintana pa nyan, lawanit din, itina-taas pag umulan. Malamig sa labas (dahil nga naulan) pero ubod ng init sa loob, pag nagsara na lahat! He-he! Grabe, wala na pumapasok na hangin. Kasi wala pa AC noon sa mga bus.

    crame, marikina and pasig, san juan del monte to the right <<< means the
    southernmost intersection possible is santolan, before crame which is northernmost in the sign.

    manila, sta mesa heights and espana extension and san francisco del monte on the signs pointing towards the photographer AND (the only place names I can read from the signs) UP, ??, balara, culiat, ?? and ?? pointing away <<< santolan and aurora blvd are out bec those do not lead to sfdm to the west nor balara/culiat to the west. i only know of 3 roads that can lead to UP, balara and culiat going east AND that also leads to (repeat, leads to but not necessarily pass through) manila, sta mesa, espana ext and sfdm going west, and these are west ave, quezon ave and east ave.

    in addition to the above, the signs are arranged perpendicular to each other, so that means the intersection is perpendicular and not askewed like west/north/edsa or east/timog/edsa.

    me thinks this is edsa corner quezon avenue.

    I still can remember the time where:

    1. There were no overpass in Edsa...you can do J-walking.
    2. There were still 'service roads' in Edsa.
    3. Edsa ends at Taft. (Wala road papunta Roxas Blvd and MOA)

    Plus, we were able to fly saringgolas in the middle 'island' during summertime.

    BTW, I grew up near EDSA Pasay Rotonda.

    Anyway..nice pics.
