The 1904 Traveller's Guide to Bangkok and Siam by J. Antonio
A Reprint From 1904
First published by J. Antonio, one of the prominent photographers of King Chulalongkorn?s Reign, as a reliable guidebook suitable for the use of travelers. It contains a wealth of information not available in other guidebooks of the time. In particular it gives practical information for the traveler which reveals to the modern reader intimate aspects of the everyday living conditions of the time. J. Antonio?s keen interest in ordinary people is reflected, both in the text and in the photographs in this book, giving us an insight into how the man in the street went about making a living and enjoying himself. Unlike other guidebooks of the time, J. Antonio also discusses a number of provinces that are within easy reach of Bangkok. Services available at the time contrast dramatically with present-day Bangkok, as do the prices they commanded.
