Title

Manila Hotel in the Philippines photograph, 13 April 1946

Description

The Manila Hotel in the Philippines shown in 1946. Front reads, "Manila Hotel" and also "Army Navy Club". However, the Army and Navy Club, while similar in appearance, is a different building. The Manila Hotel was occupied by the Japanese for the duration of World War II. Verso reads, "4/13/46" and appears to have read "Army-Navy Club" at one time, but has been erased, perhaps leading to the confusion.
