More Mid 1960s Taipei Streets

Chungshan Road, driving north, just after crossing the railroad tracks east of Taipei Main Station, the summer of 1967. I purchased a beautiful marble fruit dish at a store on the left side of this bridge, one of the stores before the cross street ahead.

Can someone please help with the name of this cross street.

CAT Offices, everyone knows this street. Where is the Ambassador Hotel?

Does anyone recognize this photograph location? Could be on any street in Taiwan.

Photos courtesy of Ted Baxter. Ted was assigned to Army MAAG Taiwan and worked at the USTDC Comm Center.

Ted and his wife Judy were with the group of old Taiwan hands who visited Taiwan this past September on the American GI' Return to Taiwan in 2009 2 week visit.

More details of our trip and more old photos coming.

Into the Haze - Chungshan North Rd 1968

Their appears to be construction on-going on the right side of this photograph. I seem to remember this being some sort of night club or restaurant. I believe it was just south of the Green Garden Hotel.

Nice white Ford parked along the curb, not a common vehicle color during the 1960s.

The old days, park anywhere you wanted to....

What business occupies this site today?

Another 1968 Photo

Here is another photo taken about June 1968.

Can anyone identify the area.

I think that the large building on the left side of the photograph could be the American Embassy.

What's your guess?
