I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, some system options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm sure you're thrilled by your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Embassy of the Philippines in Washington, D.C. is the diplomatic mission of the Republic of the Philippines to the United States. It is located at 1600 Massachusetts Avenue, Northwest, Washington, D.C. It predates the independence of the Philippines, and is the oldest Philippine legation overseas, though the distinction of the first Philippine embassy proper overseas, belongs to the Philippine Embassy in Tokyo.
The original Philippine Embassy building, a house built in 1917 for Daniel C. Stapleton on a design by local architect Clarke Waggaman, was purchased by the Office of the Resident Commissioner of the Philippines during the period of service of Joaquin Elizalde. During World War II, from May 1942 onwards, it became the headquarters of the government-in-exile of the Commonwealth of the Philippines and temporary capital of the Philippines until the Commonwealth government returned to the Philippines in October, 1944.
The former chancery located at 1617 Massachusetts Avenue
On July 4, 1946, the embassy was formally established. A residence for the Philippine Ambassador was purchased in the 1950s, the original plan of President Quezon to turn the temporary official residence of the President of the Philippines located at the Shoreham Hotel having been abandoned by President Osmeņa.
In 1991, construction of a new Chancery Building began on a trapezoidal island on Massachusetts Avenue, bordered by 17th Street, N Street, Bataan street, and Massachusetts Avenue, across from the old building. Completed in 1993, the present-day building is a four-story of beaux-arts design with a smooth-finish precast, blending nicely with the traditional limestone structures of Embassy Row.
The old building, meanwhile, was converted into the embassy's Consular section in the late 2000s.

I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
