Glen “Radar” Nelson 1970-72  just provided us with this gallery of Taipei Photos:

Glen also provided these shots of the Taipei Zoo from 1970 or 1971.  At that time the Zoo was located on the west side of Shung-shan N. Rd. just north of the HSA compound before crossing the bridge to Jiantan and Shilin.  Today the Taipei Zoo is located at the southern end of Taipei in the Muzha District.

One more gallery of photos from Glen Nelson.  Not sure where some of these were taken, but will assume they are from the Taipei/Linkou area.

The following 25 photos were taken by Earl Axe 1971-72 in Taipei

The following 25 photos were taken by Steve Callis 1971-72.  These are some of the best quality photos in terms of composition and resolution that were taken from the original Linkounavy.com site.  I took the liberty of doing some slight editing to bring out the original contrast, hue and a few that were scanned from slides needed to be flipped.  Cars driving on he wrong side of the street were a clue, the Chinese language signs weren’t much help to me.
