[Photos] Amble Through Saigon’s Markets and Pagodas in 1965–1966

The photo series was taken by Thomas W. Johnson, a chaplain assistant working at the US 3rd Field Hospital in Saigon in the 1960s.

The building the hospital occupied is now the Southeastern Armed Forces Museum Military Zone 7, located on 247 Hoang Van Thu, Tan Binh District.

The series switches between scenes of people going about in bustling markets, hanging out at the zoo, and visiting pagodas — scenes typical to many photos taken by tourists and American servicemen at the time.
