Interesting Antiques at the Old Jesuit House of 1730 in Cebu City, Philippines

One of the oldest dated houses in the Philippines is found on an almost decrepit area in the country's oldest city. On a street where not much happens in the old Parian district of Cebu City, one can find the Jesuit House of 1730. The house is within the warehouse of a Filipino-Chinese businessman along Zulueta Street. It also houses the Museo Parian sa Sugbo. The museum displays several collections such as the history of the Jesuit order in the Philippines. Another exhibit is dedicated to the history of the Parian district. Also on display are some pre-Hispanic archaeological items among others. Also located within the Parian area and is within walking distance of the Jesuit House of 1730 are other notable heritage structures. To name a few: the Parian Fire Station, the Colon Street Obelisk, the Yap-Sandiego Ancestral House, the Cebu Heritage Monument, and Casa Gorordo.

Old Gramophone 

When I was a child and growing up in a rural town in Zamboanga del Norte, I have some scant memory of vinyl discs placed on a gramophone record to play music. But so far, the oldest-looking gramophone I have come across is displayed at the Jesuit House of 1730.
