In This Corner - The Contender!

Our Contender has given it up for a short nap inside his small shop in Taichung, the calendar says it's Sunday, 23 September 1978.
My friend Ken says " this man sold home Chinese medicine remedies. The remedies are in a powder form and supposedly can improve one's overall physical condition, as demonstrated by the "before" photograph in his small shop. Maybe his decedents are still there selling the same potions.
Here is the Asia Steam Bath and Massage Parlor which was located next to the Stadus Club, one of the main hang-outs for CCK folks during 1978.

Chiayi Air Base Shows Up - UPDATED

Click on the photograph for a larger copy

Roger Chuang from Kaohsiung located a copy of the Tainan and Chiayi Air Base Booklet published way back in 1965 and sent it in for all to see.

The name of the club in Chiayi was "Top of the Mark." Anyone remember the club?

This is the first piece of documentation that really talks about Chiayi Air Base.

Today we have the cover, check back this weekend for more of the booklet pages.

The complete booklet can be found HERE.
