[Photos] 10 Black-and-White Images of Saigon in 1970

A trip to Saigon in 1970 by photographer Jerry Bosworth yielded a small cache of black-and-white images that vividly depict a city in flux.

Even though little is known about their author, the street photos are considerably high-quality for the era. Have a peek at them below.
