These photos were selected to best represent what Phu Lam looked like over the years and how it changed. Only the most
interesting pictures are include here. There are thousands of pictures that were not used because of their lower quality
or they duplicated what is seen in a better photo. Although Black & White pictures can look very nice, if available a
color picture was selected instead.
The photos are sorted by the date they were taken. If you see two sets of dates, the first one is the presumed date range
the photo was probably taken and the second set is the full tour of the PhuLamer. The photo date is usually determined
by what is shown in the photo. For example, if a PhuLamers' tour was in '67 and '68, and he has a picture showing the
Two Story Barracks, we know that picture had to have been taken in Feb 1968 or later.
The upper left of the photo shows the direction the photographer was facing. The two letter code in the upper right is
the ID number for that picture. Refer to it along with the name of the PhuLamer if you have any questions about a
particular photo.
This page is divided into three sections.
1) BUILDINGS AND AREAS: All pictures here show what is indicated in the link title. In some cases you will see where
the building was or will be located.
2) PHOTOS WITH A COMMON THEME: These photos show an area of Phu Lam rather than an exact building. Many are
taken from a common vantage point but can be looking in different directions.
3) GENERAL INTEREST: General interest photos with a related theme.
If you like the way the pictures are presented here and would like to see more, you can request a full set of pictures
on a USB Flash drive. With it, you can view all the pictures of a particular building or area rather than the few that
have been pre-selected for this section of the web site. The photos on the USB drive are not compressed and most are
suitable for printing and enlarging to view the details.
