Above, a colorized picture of the then-town and now city of Batangas taken in 1945 right after the conclusion of World War II. The original photograph was uploaded to Flickr by John Tewell, a prolific archivist of Philippines-related historical photos. In the photograph's page on Flickr, Tewell wrote this description: “Another photograph by the same American soldier that was stationed in Manila right after the war. Some of the buildings appear to be war damaged. Digitized image from the original negative. One of a kind snapshot taken by an American soldier.”
