Vietnam - Looking Into the Past

Photographer Khánh Hmoong took historical pictures of Vietnam in the 20th-century and matched themup with the same locations in the 21st century. In many photos, the landscape remains the same, although the world is quite different. In others, the landscape itself has changed. The picture shown here is the former Presidential Palace, with a photo of the fall of Saigon (known as the Liberation of Saigon in Vietnam) on April 30, 1975, on top. Very few of the pictures in the set have anything to do with the American involvement. Link -via Laughing Squid
