23 Photos of Saigon Street Life in 1969-1970


Free of international-style skyscrapers, Saigon’s urban quarters used to be all red roofs and modernist tube houses in the late 1960s.

In these few film photos, US Army veteran D. Hoag recorded a cool and chaotic Saigon when traffic jams were a city staple and residents rode around the city in áo dài and sunglasses. Hoag stayed on Tran Hung Dao Street, just a few blocks from Ben Thanh Market, and some shots piece together a panoramic look of the diminutive Saigon skyline.
