More faces from far away and long ago. Saigon Memories

Most of the people in the photos of this old album of a reception of long ago (Saigon, Cirque Hippique 1969) were themselves very old.
They would have been young before the Japonese army took control of Vietnam in the Second World War.
They would have known the French before and during their Indo-China war.
At the time of these photos the war against the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese was still being fought and the outcome still unknown.
In fact war had been going on so long it seemed an almost natural form of life.
