Description


This is a c. 1960 Saigon Moi Newspaper city map or plan of Bạc Liêu, Vietnam, the capital of Bạc Liêu Province. The Bạc Liêu River flows through town, and city streets are illustrated and labeled along both banks. Fourteen locations within the city are numerically identified and correspond with a key situated in the lower left corner, including the cemetery, two temples, the football field, and the hospital. During the French colonial period, Bạc Liêu was a prosperous town, with many wealthy farmers and other successful inhabitants. However, during the years of the Vietnam War, people began leaving Bạc Liêu, and the city slowly shrank, and even today is still trying to recover from the hardships suffered during the war years.
