Día de la inauguración, 1939
In 1939 the old Colgante Bridge was dismantled to build on its site a steel bridge named Quezon and also Quiapo Bridge. Like the other bridges in Manila, it was destroyed during Worl War II and it was reconstructed after the war in the same style albeit with a more robust and decorative aspect.
