[Photos] Walk the Streets of 1965 Da Nang

Given how fast Vietnam's major cities change, and it can be hard to imagine what they looked like in decades past.

Thankfully plenty of old photos of these areas exist. In this collection curated by Flickr user mannhai, Bruce Tester and Bob Curry depict life in Da Nang in 1965.

The photos show a mostly quiet, low-slung small city on the banks of the Han River. The people in these images would likely hardly recognize Da Nang today, with its seafront resorts, striking bridges and growing clutch of high-rises.
