    The colorized B&W photo courtesy of ‘Page Siam Colorization by Noomrattana’ shows one of King Rama V’s sons (1881 – 1944) whose mother was one of the King’s Queen Consorts. Among his various expertise, music was one of them. He composed this song which has been considered one of the very early modern Thai music.

    The colorized B&W photo courtesy of ‘Page Siam Colorization by Noomrattana’ shows what inside a photo studio looked like in the reign of King Rama VI (1910-1925). The shop is assumed to be owned by a farung photographer. This picture shows how the enough light was obtained to take a photo.

    The model is a royalty who died young at the age of 37 (1924) from tuberculosis.

He never made it to the king. His brother (from a different mother) sat, instead, on the throne as King Rama VI (standing on the left to his father, King Rama V)

    The colorized B&W photo courtesy of ‘Page Siam Colorization by Noomrattana’ shows the Royal Tonsure Ceremony of the first Crown Prince of Siam/Thailand, Prince Maha Vajirunhis (1878 – 1895). A part of the miniature model of Mount Kailasa, the mythical abode of Shiva is seen in the photo.

    This ancient rite of passage would be performed for the royal prince and princess around the age of thirteen. The ceremony, sometimes lasting seven days of festivities, involves a purifying bath and the cutting of the traditional topknot hair of the royal child. The latter act was done by the king himself, the hair is later thrown into the Chao Phraya River as an offering. For this purpose there is a miniature palace on the summit for the ceremony to take place. The lower part of the mountain is populated with stone sculptures of miniature mythical animals of the Himavanta Forest. The mount is situated behind the walk way between the Dusit Maha Prasat Throne Hall and Ho Plueng Krueng. This area is considered part of the Inner Court and is not opened to the public.

    The colorized B&W photo courtesy of ‘Page Siam Colorization by Noomrattana’ shows an election campaign poster for Siamese Prime Minister in 1957. The person was Plaek Phibunsongkram.


    It was known as “the dirtiest election in Thai history.” Alleged vote-rigging led to the victory of the pro-military party, headed by Field Marshal Plaek Phibunsongkram. Newspapers reported many of the poll abuses and denounced the results. Public protests forced the government to declare a national emergency. The chaos deepened divisions between the army and the police.

    The army commander, Gen. Sarit Thanarat, withdrew the support of the army faction in parliament and then led a coup in September that ousted the Phibun government.

    ^ To the outside observer, with all the bribery during elections things don't seem to have improved much. Still, hoping the Junta is how history with MF and PT.

    Tennis as a new sport came first to Siam in the reign of King Rama V (1868-1910). It was introduced by the Europeans. First Siamese who played this game were students coming back from Europe after their study.

    The royal family of Siam played the major role in the starting development of tennis in Siam/Thailand. At first, Siamese men wore ‘jong krabane’ and farung wore white pants. The uniform was changed into white shorts in, around, 1900 facing the criticism concerning the cultural appropriation of Siam good manner. A tennis racket cost around 20 baht.

    In 1926 King Rama VII founded the official Lawn Tennis Association of Siam.

    The colorized B&W photos courtesy of ‘Page Siam Colorization by Noomrattana’ shows King Rama VI (1910-1925)’s favorite posing with his tennis racket. He was King Rama VI’s favorite. The second photo shows the manor (just a part) being bestowed by the King himself.

    The Customs House was built in 1888 and designed by an Austro Hungarian architect of Italian descent named Joachim Grassi. Built in the Palladin style, it is a fine example of the prevalent use of Western architecture in public buildings during Siam's modernisation under the reign of King Rama V (1868 – 1910). The building, sitting on the eastern bank of the Chao Phraya River in Bang Rak District and being symbolically considered the gateway to the country, fell into disrepair during the mid-20th century. Beginning in 2019, it is undergoing restoration and re-development as a luxury hotel.

    The colorized B&W photo courtesy of ‘Page Siam Colorization by Noomrattana’ shows the Customs House being shot in 1907. The building was decorated to welcome King Rama V back from his second visit to the European countries.
