Mixed up eras

The mural of a jeepney, an invention after the Philippine-American war, on the wall of the park fronting the Quirino Grandstand has Philippine National Hero Jose Rizal as the driver, and men and women in Spanish colonial era clothes as the passengers. I am sure that they represent other historical figures of the Philippine Revolution, but I wasn't able to get close enough to see.

Funny word, jeepney. Wonder how it came about?

I'm with ODP, curious about the word "jeepney."

Love the public art. It reminds me of what one might see in Mexico. Many similarities with the theme and earthy colors!
