This was taken at the infamous Camp Odonell in the Philippines this past April. This is where the POWs were taken at the end of the Bataan death march. The buildings are a Japanise guard tower (and portion of a second) and what I believe is an administration building. The entire site now is a national park and memorial.

Somehow, I almost missed this one. A great historical shot. I am wondering if these are the original structures that have survived or if they are replicas. They seem in too good a condition to be left from WWII.

I was wondering the same thing, at the time I took it, but the area where the building was didn't seem like it was a public area so I didn't think it right to go up and try to check it out closer.

It's amazing that the building and towers are still standing. A great historical photo.
