Picapp Laos

Here are some old pictures of Laos and related topics that I found on Picapp. There’s a character to the old black and white news photographs that you don’t see in newer pictures.

Unfortunately Picapp does not have many old pictures of the cities and countryside.

Many of the old pictures on Picapp are badly sized and I had to adjust the width and height parameters. I wrote a simple proportional calculator in an Excel spreadsheet to make it easy.

This boy would be in his 50s now. I wonder if he is alive and recalls this incident.
