A five star photo for SURE! But to correct someones comment earlier, this is actually in present day Pasay City, with part of it in Paranaque City as well. I lived in this area for 2 years :)

Nichols Field is actually now called Ninoy Aquino International Airport, and is the international and domestic airport that serves Luzon.

Great history photo! This is year where the golden age of Manila ended. Manila was the 2nd city most devastated by WW2 next to Warsaw.
