More Old Photos of Bangkok

In this old picture from Bangkok, King Rama V is posing with members of the royal family in a motorcar around the start of the 20th Century.

This is a motorcar parade in Bangkok in 1908 which shows the growing popularity of cars in Thailand. Many new roads were built in this period despite that only a privileged few could own cars.

The final old photograph for today is a rickshaw in front of Hua Lampong Train Station which was completed in 1916. Notice the cars all parked in front of the station. This is a well-known landmark in Bangkok even today.
