Why is this so special? Loren arrived on Taiwan in 1954, a 1-year old boy and left Hsinchu after graduating from high school at Morrison Academy in Taichung, 16 years later, in 1970.
Loren grew up in Taiwan, spoke the language and knew his way around. Loren's childhood years here were during the period of martial law and just about everything was "off limits" for photographs, including trains.
Loren took hundreds of photographs during his high school years and he recently published a book with the best of those photos.
You may remember Loren from some earlier postings on our Web pages. Please read the Aandahl Family story and see the beautiful photographs of their life in Taiwan. Click HERE
