This photograph takes in most of the immediate area many of us were familiar with. It was taken from the revolving restaurant just a few buildings south of Min Quan Road..
There is a photograph some where on the Linkou website that shows the restaurant building. The photo shows a couple of men crossing Chan Shan North Road. Can anyone provide a link to that photo?
Most of the shops and stores catered to the military folks and, if it was made in Taiwan, you could purchase it in one of these establishments.
These photographs, taken in 1969, were sent by John Crum, who worked at STRATCOM.
He and his wife spent a year in Taiwan. Their home was less that a mile from the facilities on Grass/Gold Mountain.
Here's a familiar shop.
I purchased pair of brass and green marble lamps here. I believe the lamps are still boxed up (in pieces) awaiting repair in my garage.
