More Picapp Pictures of the King of Thailand

I posted a number of pictures of the King of Thailand and the Royal Family that I found on Picapp at https://bkkphotographer.wordpress.com/2009/11/09/picapp-pictures-of-the-thai-royal-family/.

It’s been one of the most popular posts on this blog.

Here are some more, focusing on His Majesty the King. They are ordered approximately from oldest to newest. Unfortunately there is a big jump in the Picapp archives from the 1960s until 2006.

I copied the captions from the photos verbatim. They are not consistent about the spelling of the King’s name. Often they use the old name of Thailand: Siam.

You can look for more pictures yourself. Go to http://www.picapp.com/ and enter a search string like “Thailand King”. You do not need to register.

Picapp / Getty are now asserting a 2010 copyright for the pictures. Surely that’s not correct? The copyright date is the date the picture was taken or first published isn’t it? It doesn’t update as the years go by!
