    From the shoebox: Old images from Thailand

    In my own collection, I have a lot of old images from Bangkok which I think is so cool. They are especially cool when you know how that very same area looks like today... and can see what is left, and what has changed.

    Otherwise, they are historical images which tell tales of a time long ago...

    An old tram downtown: both buildings in the background still stands today:

    Not only really cute (loved the trams, and there was a plane with old Thai livery in the second video too) ...but a 'then and now' distraction I just couldn't resist!

    This is 'then':




    ...and here are two photos of mine.


    Taken in December 2011:

    To me, this is so interesting and fascinating... everything about this decade, and the decades before that. Hair styles, clothes, traditions, the exotic and simpler life....

    Enjoy this one:

    Oh I so love these old photos. Well, I’ll accept the photo assignment to take a new photo of Ratchadamnoen Avenue – should be able to manage that .
    As for that Welcome to Bangkok, they got their priorities right especially for you paks, with such prominence given to your favourite beverage (….and the Starbucks came later)

    The area around Siam Center, way before Siam Center was built on the left side:



    Same area, a little later, shows the erected Siam Center:
