^ is that the landmark in that second photo ?

I believe it is. Right across the street is a sign that says Quality Inn - don't know if that is there still.

Looks like the Landmark, with the enterance to soi 15 on the rh side just above the tuk tuk where the red car is pulling out.

First photo is the Bangkok bank building, was the bank open then?

Miama hotel LOL is that dump still going or did it go the way of the Crown up on soi 29?

The Topper Club was still around when I first lived here 1980-1984. I remember they have pics of when Bob Hope visited or did his act there. I think that was in Ploenchit area? Anyone remember the Sani Chateau in Gaysorn and Mario's Pizza?

Thanks for sharing.

I'm amazed at how open and airy Suk looks w/o the BTS overhead. Reminds me a lot of the main boulevards in a lot of other big cities. Michigan Ave. in Chicago, Calle Gran Via in Madrid, many others.

the nana hotel and suk road pics are amazing - what a contrast to the present day.

RE the 1st picture: I miss the Armarit beer and, non-appropo, Nick's #1 (which probably dates me!).

Here she is with her two sisters at Pattaya beach 1968. <just kidding, a beach photographer did the special effect shot>

We didn't fit the TV stereotype - she's an older woman as I was only 20 at the time. :D We were a couple for some time but both realists as when my tour of duty ended I would have to leave. That and my being too young to know what I wanted in life yet except to return to Thailand. :)
