Peace Time

Aurelio Mercado was one of the individuals who attended the Conference of Industrial Arts Teachers in Baguio City in the last week of April, 1930.
It was summer. He and Francisca just got married on the second Sunday of that month, after the end of classes of the 1929-1930 schoolyear. They were married by the Aglipayan parish priest of San Clemente in the Philippine Independent Church building located in that town. Those who attended were the parents of Aurelio, Policarpio Mercado and Esperanza Marquez-Mercado, his two sisters Dominga and Itang, and his two brothers Angquing and Minoy. They all went to San Clemente riding a calesa, a horse-drawn carriage generally used for public transport in the Philippines during the American colonial rule. All the family members of Francisca in San Clemente attended the wedding.
The American colonial rule of the Philippine Islands which was from the end of all hostilities in 1907 of the Philippine-American War up to the Japanese invasion of the Philippines in December 1941 was generally called Peace Time by most Filipinos.
