Cagayan de Misamis: 1924

President Emilio Aguinaldo visited Cagayan de Misamis in OCtober 5, 1924. This photo shows a make-shift covered stand, which after careful study, indicates this to be on the spot at the present day Divisoria, Tiano Brothers Street end, facing the Rizal Monument.
The corner house in the near background used to house "Mama's Favorite" Store in the 70's.

I am posting these, scanned from Tita Tellie Velez' collection -- in celebration of our city's charter anniversary.

On June 15, 1950 former President Elpidio Quirino signed Republic Act No. 521 in the MalacaƱang Palace. It granted the status of a chartered city to the Municipality of Cagayan de Misamis. This was made possible through the efforts of then Congressman Emmanuel Pelaez, who eventually became the Vice President of the Philippines.

Cagayan de Oro was declared a highly urbanized city by the Ministry of Local Government on November 22, 1983.
