One last identifier for the club in the foreground, known as: 'Legaspi Garden' which was a restaurant, bar, and all around entertainment facility especially for sailors and military men.

Good photo here:

Very interesting, and thank you Cisco for location identification.

For those of you who use Facebook, there is a good photo of the pier under construction circa 1918.
Search Facebook: 'Pier 7 Manila' or look in the Group 'Philippine History and Architecture'.

I will copy the accompanying text to that photo, here:
"Pier 7, Manila. Erected 1918. Port Area, Manila.
by: Arch't. Tomas Bautista Mapua

At about one thousand feet long, Pier 7 was one of the longest architectural structures in the Philippines during its' time. It was also known as the Million Dollar Pier because it is reputed to be the longest passenger pier in the world back then.

The government spent 12 million pesos (which was a whopping amount in 1918) for the construction of Pier 7. The pier was designed by Architect Tomas Mapua.

As with the other building casualties, Pier 7 was also destroyed and was never rebuilt after the war."

Cisco, this proves you are 100% correct. My suggestion for Indonesia was based on the nationality of the poster.

Given her owners and their trade I would suggest Manila.

A lot of countries in South East Asia, especially those that were British colonies at that time have and had left hand drive traffic. So has our former colony Indonesia, so could this be Batavia?

Or...... the Philipines where they drove on the left up until WW2... as did much of South America.

Cars driving on the left so somewhere in Japan?

It looks to be one of the US Shipping Board's 535-class ships. She appears to have the funnel markings of the Admiral Oriental Line, so it could be either the Wenatchee, which was later renamed President Jefferson or it could be the Keystone State, later renamed President McKinley. The terminal building looks familiar but I don't know where that is.
