Dalat in Black & White. Vietnam memories

Three photos taken in Dalat in the late 1950s. As usual at that time they were in black and white. It was a time of relative peace in Vietnam.
My wife remembers being driven up tp Dalat once in the company of a certain Mr Hung. This was at night. The first time I drove to Dalat in the late 1960s I was thoroughly scared. I did it in the daytime and never met another vehicle on the road.
Mr Nguyen Van Hung, a member of her extended family was at one time Prime Minister under President Thieu. He had held various other posts in the past and was somewhat left leaning. I can remember seeing him riding around on a bicycle at Vung Tau. He looked thoroughly out of place in a chauffeur driven car with police motorcycle escorts in Saigon.
