    The colorized B&W photo courtesy of ‘Page Siam Colorization by Noomrattana’ shows a postman rowing a boat called ‘needle row boat’ in a klong in Thonburi Province area in 1950s.

    Siam postal service has been established in 1883. In the beginning, a lot of pranks were very popular such as sending a small rock or a card containing rude words to the receiver whom the sender hated and etc. A list of appropriate regulations was applied later.

    Wat Phra Kaew, commonly known in English as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and officially as Wat Phra Si Rattana Satsadaram, is regarded as the most sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand. In the old days, ordinary Siamese were not allowed to enter the site because it was/is the royal Wat. The people who were allowed were noblemen and farung but only on the special occasions.

    The first time that normal Siamese were allowed to visit the Wat was in the reign of King Rama IV (mid 1800s) but only on the religious days (wan pra). They were fully granted permission to visit the Wat every day in the reign of King Rama IX (1958).

    The colorized B&W photo courtesy of ‘Page Siam Colorization by Noomrattana’ shows a ‘kon ruey (rich people)’ funeral in the old days. As a tradition, the funeral arrangements for the deceased would have the coffin being held high, the symbol of paying respect, and decorated beautifully. More or less of which would depend on the family’s finance and honor.

    Once King Rama V paid a visit to Kumpangpech city in the early 1900s, he received a very warm welcome from the ruler of the city. Beautiful girls selected from noble clans were presented to provide comfort. There were 4 of them as shown in the colorized B&W photo courtesy of ‘Page Siam Colorization by Noomrattana’ of which the original photo was taken by the King himself.

    The colorized B&W photo courtesy of ‘Page Siam Colorization by Noomrattana’ shows Kruba Srivichai (1878-1939), a monk who became known as the Patron Saint of Lanna or the Engineer Monk (Said Wiki., I have no idea what that means).

    The term Kruba refers to a senior monk in the Northern Thai dialect. Kruba Srivichai has been responsible for initiating and coordinating the restoration of temples and the construction of bridges and roads in North Thailand. His followers constructed the road to Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep in 1935. One of the most famous old pictures shows the monk and his followers at the bottom of the naga staircase to the temple.

    Interesting question! The answer is quite complicated for me to translate into English. I have read that a tray holding the left bones and ashes was place under the 'koat'. The rest procedure is what you have already known.

    By the way, who is King Johnny??

    Thank you for asking...

    The colorized B&W photo courtesy of ‘Page Siam Colorization by Noomrattana’ shows alcohol advertisement in 1936. In the early days, such thing had been imported from Europe and Japan. Siam started its own factory in 1934.

    In the old days, they did not have irons for clothes. They had
    a level metal paddle which the user used to press the clothes in the hope that the pressing would remove the wrinkles.

    Thai chronicles told that Kedah used to be a Siamese city like Nakhon Si Thammarat. Back then it was a part of Siamese Kingdom until it was conquered by the Malay sultanate of Malacca in the 15th century.

    In the 17th century, Kedah was attacked by the Portuguese after their conquest of Malacca. In the hope that Great Britain would protect what remained of Kedah from Siam, the sultan handed over Penang and more to the British at the end of the 18th century.

    The Siamese nevertheless invaded Kedah in 1821, and it remained under Siamese control under the new name of Syburi. In 1896, Kedah along with Perlis and Setul was combined into the Siamese province of Monthon Syburi which lasted until transferred to the British by the Anglo-Siamese Treaty of 1909.

    The colorized B&W photo courtesy of ‘Page Siam Colorization by Noomrattana’ shows the last ruler of Kedah, 25th, while being under the influence of Siam.

    The colorized B&W photo courtesy of ‘Page Siam Colorization by Noomrattana’ shows Princess Dara Rasami (page 29/706), one of King Rama V’s wives (Princess Consort).


    Memory Lane (In my own language)-a03-jpg


    Though born a royalty and wealthy, while living in the Grand Palace, Princess Dara and the ladies in her entourage were, from time to time, ribbed and called ‘Lao ladies’ as well as being teased that they ‘smelled of fermented fish (pla-ra)’.

    “I wish I could go back home every day” said the Princess.
