[Photos] Take a Tour of Da Nang in 1954

A collection of pictures compiled on Flickr shows what life in Da Nang looked like way back in 1954.

The photographs, taken by Ronald B. Frankum Jr., an American author and historian, depict Da Nang's coastal city life the same year that French forces pulled out of Vietnam. Frankum's shots showcase street scenes, boats along the Han River, soldiers on R&R and an aerial view of the Marble Mountains before the nearby beachfront was covered in high-end resorts.
