Summary expansion
The name of the photographer is stamped on front cover of album--"Photos Huu Tao, Quinhon [Quy Nhon]" and blind-stamped on nine of the photographs laid in. The North-South Railway, also called the Transindochinois or Trans-Indochinese, is the principal rail line serving Vietnam, built under French colonial rule between 1899 and 1936. The album opens with a 24-inch three-panel composite panorama of a birds-eye view of the train station at Diêu Trì, showing the station house as well as the out-buildings and car barn and the train yard, with mountains in the background and rice fields in the foreground. Other photographs show the various bridges, primarily concrete, built along the route, other train stations along the line--Tan Vinh, Muc Thinh, Phuoc Lanh, La Hai, and Chi Thanh-- surrounding landscape, concluding with five different views of the Tuy Hòa station and complex. Also included are an additional 22 photographs laid in (5 are 13 x 17 cm or less; 17 measure 17 x 23 cm) that depict construction along the line, including bridges and embankments. The album, probably belonging to an engineer or government official, constitutes a visual record of the extensive financial investment made in French colonial Indochina. Much of this rail line was destroyed in the post-war period following World War II
