7 Old Pictures of Saigon Street Vendors

The buildings and streets of Saigon can change in the blink of an eye. Gone are the streetcars, French street names and ox-drawn carts.

Check out the slideshow below of Saigon street vendors taken between 1900 and 1975. Can you identify any of the locations?
