Taipei [Taihoku] Hsimen


A nice collection of Hsimen photos from the 1950s - 1970s can be found at this former US Military in Taiwan site: shulinkou/ShimaDing

The image above is from that link. (1970 by M.Hine)



Chunghua Rd construction. Note large temple in background. It burned down many years ago.

When I first came to Taipei in the late 80s, this building was still in heavy use. You could buy all sorts of items such as
10 for NT$100 music cassettes, 5.25" copy software, electronic widgets, military patches, uniforms, trophies, etc.


Images below I screencaptured off of a youtube video so that you can see the life of the Chunghua Rd. building. 1950-1992
