In the basement or ground floor of the power plant at it's east end.
The bottom openings lead to the area of the last shot.Left is the massive chimney of the coal-steam powered plant
An up to date sign as to what is offered on Corregidor. Sections, that offered the tour as included in the admission ticket have been painted over.
On the 7th of Dec was a very clear day and Mount Mariveles seems close. In front is Lorcha Dock where Gen. MacArthur departed.Several times I remembered the Pearl Harbor day, actually on the 8th here.
It was so clear on this day that we could see Mount Arayat. That was the 1st time ever for me. On this 7th Dec was also the only day the North Channel was fairly calm.It is visible about 1/3 in from the right.
Near the on ramp to the hotel; I believe these are new walls built. Note: All pics in this album were shot between the 5th and 8th Dec 2007.
We are in an Ammo Bunker near Infantry Point.My friends were Hash House Harriers from Angeles City.
Tis bunker is pretty long, runs parallel to the north beach and has 3 entrances. It is also very near the house where Gen MacArthur stayed for a few days during the Siege.
This bunker must have been used by the 92nd PS Coastal Artillery. This is the 1st time we noticed this writing; 'The Smoking of Cigarettes is forbidden here'!
Most of us stayed at the Row House, located on the Stockade level. These folks are the care takers. It costs 650 Peso a night per room.
A new sign at the 'Mile Long Barracks'.
Picture on our 1st day by the stature of Gen. MacArthur, located at the Lorcha Dock where he departed from.
In the bunker,ammo section between the two guns of Battery Maxwell Keyes.
Near and just west of Battery Maxwell Keyes and also close to the road are these steps to a former building.
A new plate at Battery Way, honoring the Sergeant who manned the last firing gun there.
A new passenger boat is being constructed near the Eng.Ravine.
About 100 feet east from the Eng.Ravine Tunnel we came across the large but short tunnel, which we didn't know about.
The Eng.Ravine Tunnel was later expanded to form an 'H'. Here we just stepped back into the main part of it. Turning left leads to the entrance.
Looking towards the entrance in the main part of the Eng.Ravine Tunnel.
My partner is inching back out of the Eng.Ravine Tunnel.
This pic helps me to find that Eng.Ravine Tunnel again. Left are the fuel tanks to the diesel power plant.

2013-02-12 Near those steps in the last image is this large concrete block. It came from what explosion? It looks a little similar like the mystery concrete near the Japanese gun on the Morrison Hill slopes.
2013-02-12 Barrio San Isidro had a separate road towards the Stockade Level and crossed a small creek with this bridge between the Barrio and the Nipa Quarters.
