Description: A history of Bangkok, Thailand in which photos taken 100 years ago are juxtaposed by photos shot at the same place and angle two years ago. Extensive text is augmented by 140 items taken from the Bangkok Times newspaper of 1900 and 1901. The approach is at the same time informative, yet light, giving a comprehensive picture of a city in transition and leaving the reader to decide whether life today is an improvement on life a century ago.
