Five-door tenement houses

Did you know???
The five-door tenement houses were built for married patients in 1926. These tenements used to have tiza bricks for roofings which have now been replaced by rusty corrugated iron sheets. Because of its clay tile roofing characteristics, the area was known as Worcester Plaza, and later Tiza (Chalk) or Barangay Tiza.
This facade shows the old look of a tenement unit identified by numbering with metal boxes for billing statements.
