Do you know that the tinsmith along Mortola Street in Cagayan de Oro City has been in existence for almost 60 years already? In this photo of the street courtesy of Atty. Skye Capistrano Mortola dated March 13, 1964, two notable structures are shown in the background – the rural bank building at left and the metalcraft shop at right. Photo is taken from current JR Borja Street looking towards Hayes.
The rural bank building is now part of Ororama but the tinsmith still exists today.
