Thinking of Mama, Concepcion Cuenco Manguerra, Cebu Carnival Queen 1931

My Mother, Concepcion Cuenco Manguerra, was Cebu's Carnival Queen in 1931. The top picture is part of Lucy Miller's coffee table book, Glimpses of Old Cebu

I saw this picture only when I got a copy of Lucy's book. Many of Mama's old photos were destroyed during World War II.  The few pictures I have came from other people who knew her.
