M1194: Boy Scout Monument Postcard

The postcard shows a Boy Scout Monument and identified its location as Manila; however, I could not find any Boy Scout Monument in the Manila area. There is one in Tomas Morato, but it doesn't look like the one in the postcard. Another Boy Scout Monument I found is in Tacloban, and it is also not the same monument.

M1176: Marigondon Beach Postcard

The postcard shows the Marigondon Beach located on Mactan Island in Cebu. The beach has white and fluffy sand and the sea is a translucent shade of turquoise. The beach is also good for scuba divers since it has coral reefs just 300 yards off the beach. The Marigondon Cave is the highlight of any underwater excursion in the area.

The back of the postcard reads:

M1175: Moslem Mosque Postcard

The postcard shows a Moslem mosque in Marawi City, Lanao del Norte. The postcard, however, did not identify the mosque. I tried to identify it but this mosque looks different to other Marawi mosques I have seen online.
