This is an original 1940 color print of the Philippine iron Mines in Luzon. The caption writes, "In 1939 production was 644,000 tons of ore, all of which was shipped to Japan. Because of the geographical location of the Philippines-- and the consequent freight rates-- Japan is the only customer." Photography by Fenno Jacobs.
