Plaza Salamanca Marker Unveiled

Manila Mayor Joseph Ejercito Estrada reads the text of the new marker installed yesterday at the Plaza Salamanca along Taft Avenue, Manila, following his brief address to mark the occasion. Plaza Salamanca was named after Dr. Olivia Salamanca, the nation’s second licensed female doctor, who graduated in 1910 and devoted her brief life to helping ailing Filipinos particularly those afflicted with tuberculosis which in the early 20th century was considered a terminal disease.
