Slideshow: How Saigon Changed from 1955 - 2005

In 2005, the French Consulate in Saigon commissioned a publication called, Saigon 1955 - Ho Chi Minh City. As the title suggests, the book compares well-known Saigon locations found in photos taken by French photographer, Raymond Cauchetier in 1955 to their 2005 states. While a bit old, the book does an awesome job of showing how Saigon has changed (or stayed the same) over the years.
