Needless to say, the old shots of Sontra, Danang remain folk- traditions, history and ones’ lifetime.

With personal love and care, I create the collection to answer all wonders of what Son Tra, Danang looked like hundreds years ago.

The  Old Son Tra Peninsula, Danang Photos Collection is collected from different sources, by different peoples, mainly by French and American, between 1860s and 1960s.

The Photos are part of my interesting job in caring, sharing my roots and driving me as the Top Sontra Peninsula Specialist.

All the photos feature views of Son Tra mountain ( Tien Sa, Monkey Mountain), Tien Sa harbor, native fishing villages and folks. Some makes me say Whoo…hu !!! Amazing.

Last but not least, it would be interesting to see any other photographs that may be around.  I’d encourage everyone to reflect on any old photographs or maps or drawings or paintings you might have of these places, or the locality, or of local people that you would like to share with us.

Enjoy and discover old Son Tra, just to love and preserve its genuine values.
