[Photos] The Vibrant Past of Saigon's Quach Thi Trang Roundabout in the 1960s

From the city’s early days until recently, Saigon’s Quach Thi Trang roundabout has always been a muse for traveling photographers.

However, the beloved square – along with the the adjacent bus station and Ben Thanh Market – has recently been fenced off to facilitate metro construction. Therefore, this set of photos taken by photographer John Beck in the late 1960s is an invaluable reminder of what central District 1 used to look like in its glory days.

Have a trip down memory lane through this collection of old film photos below:
