April 28, 1945 Â Ashore Olongapo Zambales, Luzon, Phillipine Islands
While ashore (slightly off limits), I sketched five year old â€œAnita Ragadâ€, the youngest of a family of eight whose living conditions, however clean, had not progressed much in over two centuries. Cooking was accomplished over an open fire on a large stone slab outside the thatched roof house. Running water is still a thing of the future. The only signs of the twentieth century were her cotton dress, metal containers, knives and the great city of Manila not many miles away.
Angela Revise was one of the few proud girls with shoes in Philippines since the beginning of the war.
