Wanchai Praya c.1920s.jpg

Photo by an officer on HMS Gnat in the late '20s,
(not 1931 as was written on the photo)

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Thursday, January 1, 1920


Just a quick observation. By 1931, the Praya East Reclamation Scheme would have been completed. The photo may have been taken earlier, so guessing early 1920s. 

That was the date on the photo, so it's bound to be wrong smiley,
others in the set are between 1927 and 1932,
here, the reclamations are in progress, and I believe that the photographer is standing on newly reclaimed land.
