I remember my dad visit Pattaya and Bangkok in 1978 . He took some great pictures of the daily life there and showed us back home.

But my mom never understood why there were so many beautiful girls in them.... :)

Have you got anymore photos you could post? Would love to see more!!!

I will have to take a further look. Have more of Pattaya 1968 & 1989 but don't want to go off topic unless the OP has no problems with that. Will have to dig up the old topic that has Pattaya pics of the past and put a link here.

Feel Free to post any pics of Thailand doing "the old days"

This is practically what i want. That this thread gets pinned and everybody share old pics of todays crowded places!

Thanks to everyone here!

Edit 4 good/

It would be nice to get a picture here of a former Massage House! :)

A few more. If I get the location/ID wrong I'm sure someone will correct me. :) These are not as interesting though.

I have to say, besides all pictures it is also very interesting the stories of some users here when they was in the age of (...) and writing here

what had they doing that time. Nice Nice..., really!

Great pics, wow I would have loved to been able to experience that as a young adult back then. Heh but since I was just Born in 1975 I guess no such luck :D

Thanks for posting :D

I was born 1984 but I would have prefer if i was borne in the year of 1947 :D

Just an idea:

Maybe a Mod could pin this thread and rename the Title into: "Thailand in the Old Days" or something like that????

And the sub title change from "3 pics for u" to something different. Any suggestion here welcome! :D

Hey! Maybe we can work a trade? I was born 1944 - would that work? :)

My first trip to Bangkok was in 1963 at the tender age of 19. I truly wish I had been more a tourist instead of a GI. I used the electric trolleys back then - they were gone when I came back two years later.

Thanks to the posters for the pictures. I really enjoy the old photo's. Polaroid was the latest thing in 1963 and all the pictures I took have deteriorated over the years - another good idea gone bad. A pin of the "old days" is a good idea.

A good friend of mine is the photographer and copyright holder of the images in the OP. I published the images a few years ago on my now defunct website and now they keep on popping up all over the place :) I have informed him about this post, so maybe he will be along later to add a comment. He might even take the time to upload some more images, I know that he has many from that era.
