[Photos] The Sleepy, Small Town Vibes of Central Vietnam in the Early 1960s

Before it became the modern metropolis it is today, Da Nang used to be a sleepy fishing village.

In this photo collection, courtesy of Flickr user manhhai, central Vietnam’s cities are depicted as idyllic towns with empty rural streets and serene bodies of water. These shots were taken by American soldier Ned Scheer in 1962 and 1963, when he was assigned to the Phu Bai Combat Base just south of Hue.

Have a peek at central Vietnam in the early 1960s below:
