Vintage Bangkok

Street scene from Bangkok sometime in the 1950s.

I was delighted to discover those three-wheeled rickshaws can still be found plying their trade on the Chao Praya. Check them out at the terminus of the express river boat route, Nonthaburi  Pibul 3.  

Neville 'Palm Trees' Palmer had a lot of respect for those guys. Always tipped big.

Oh, and BOAC stands for the British Overseas Airways Corporation which later became British Airways.
