Written on the back of this photograph is:
Its interior gutted by fire and Jap-set demolition charges, the Manila Hotel, once the city's smartest meeting place, is shown in this view from the bay. The modernistic Tourist Bureau building at the left is completely burned out inside, with only the white walls standing. Note wreckage of small craft in the left background.
