The Saigon taxi. March 1965.
Another photo from John Hansen of a quiet and peaceful Saigon in about March 1965.
When I arrived in July of that year when taking a taxi from the Continental to Tan Son Nhut I would ask for La porte militaire.
The journey would cost about 17 piastres. I would hand over a 20 piastre note and say keep the change.
Inflation had not yet arrived.
