Below, a colorized version of a photograph taken from an attack airplane of the United States Army Air Force in February 1945 on the railroad junction in Lipa, Batangas. The picture was taken from account of John Tewell
, a prolific archivist of historic Philippine photographs on Flickr. Tewell attributed the photo's source to the United States National Archives. His description on the Flickr page containing the photo was “Lipa rail junction on Luzon being attacked by medium bombers of Gen. Kenny’s 5th
AF. The repair shop has been riddled by .50 caliber bullets from the aircraft.”
