More Historical Hsinchu Photographs 1950s

These two young men are draftees who are reporting for military service and are wearing banners proclaiming their impending service to the Republic of China.

In Taiwan all young men had to serve 2 years of compulsory military service after graduation from high school.

This scene, in 1955, was taken in front of the Hsinchu railway station.

Look HERE for more wonderful photographs from Hsinchu.
