    Over the years I have collected many old Thai pics I have come across. I am going to post them here over the next few days for those who may have an interest in these. A few are old postcards from the early 1900s as well. I'll caption the ones I have info on later in the week.

    Brilliant collection, Cent. When do you intend to open the museum section at Starbeams?

    Glad you like these, Mike. I've been collecting these for over a dozen years. An interest of mine is history and I get a kick out of the old pics of Thailand/Siam. Thought I'd start a section/folder for these here for those that are interested. Add your own if you have any or come across any while on the net.

    Hey, I'm not into hockey, Mike. I like American football, and basketball. I like baseball, but would rather watch it live than on the TV. Go PATS! :biggrin:Club_fight1

    AussieBill,

    Never. :) This here is the museum for now. Hope some are enjoying these old pics. The Thai restaurant that was near the Oasis Pub, that now supposedly has Lao girl staff, was a place I went to fairly often with friends and family to eat over the years. They used to have a lot of old Siam/Thailand pics on their walls there. I always enjoyed looking them over. Some neat old pics they had.
