first pictorials

Issued in1932, this set, known as the first pictorials, features Mayon Volcano, the Manila Post Office, Pier No. 7, Rice Planting, Rice Terraces, the Baguio Zigzag, and "Pagsanjan Falls" (which I posted earlier).

These also were the first Philippine stamps to depict pineapples, part of the Manila Bay, ships, the carabao, and farmers.
