Siam: A Handbook of Practical, Commercial, and Political Information

Came across a post on Facebook by Wisawut Buroot (sharing this so you can follow his posts yourselves too) of this book:

Siam: a handbook of practical, commercial, and political information, 1913 by Walter Armstrong Graham.

It’s on too, the link is >>here<<

I’ve downloaded the book’s images, resized them smaller, zipped it up and you can download it >>here<<  (91 images, 45mb, please note that I had issues uploading and the only one that was successfully uploaded is titled ““)

Here are some of my favourite images from the series.

Look at the number of elephants and how thick the pillar/fence is.
