The photograph above was taken in August 1930. It has been downloaded from the United States National Archive and is captioned “Batangas, Luzon, P.I. (for Philippine Islands) – Vertical view of Camp of Infantry Battalion (Maneuvers).”

The approximate coordinates given were 13° 45'N 121° 04'E which seem suspicious because these self-same coordinates were given for other pictures taken in apparently different locations.

However, because the United States Army maintained facilities in what was then Batangas-Town, it is possible that the maneuvers stated in the caption were being held in that town.
