    Siam, Thailand & Bangkok Old Photo Thread

    OK. Another proverbial photo thread. I don't believe it's been done yet. Some might appreciate viewing and contributing. Personal or family photos. Memorabilia and misc. photos. Images and pics taken off the net. Old postcards and prints......

    6 oct 1976 * the day they really meant business

    none of this yellow-shirt/red-shirt business. This was the real massacre. Worst even than 1992.....remember?

    Bangkok Bargirls 1969

    The U.S. R&R Centre in BKK - Windsor Hotel Sukhumvit Soi 20. I believe these girls could be rented for the week for some B400....not bad for '69. Actually, it acted as a "way station" for most serving in the SE Asian wars. This wasn't an exclusive Yank club. I believe that the fighting Aussies made it there home away from home. You think back and how this all got started. By 1969, the BKK "districts" were just getting up steam - than came Pattaya, the navy haunt. Well established bar areas upcountry around the American air bases.......

    Don't you mean 1989? Look at the soccer player on the left. 80's haircut guaranteed.

    Bangkok had trams! Bring them back.



    I remember seeing this photo when I went down to the old King Rama V (I think) holiday home near to Cha Am. Facinating place with some great old photo's there.

    I know of the place, but have never had the pleasure. There are some very interesting museums and galleries here - they're foking everywhere.
