Saigon, March 1965
What one notices here are the large numbers of Vespa and perhaps Lambretta scooters.
Later of course the market would be dominated by the Japanes Honda scooter which would become the very name for scooter.
The young Vietnamese girls habit of riding side saddle on the pillion seat was one of the more appealinly graceful sights in Saigon.
