Vanishing buildings in Nan

Buddhist school in Nan - Thailand (demolished)

I have a personal intrest in architecture and old buildings. So it was with joy that I did receive some old photos from Nan province. This is an Buddhist school in Nan town, or I should say was. As you might see in Nan town some parts of town have all reasonable new government buildings like the police station, governors house and the city hall. To be able to built this "new" government buildings in Nan town a part of the historical center was demolished, unfortunately also this old school building. Currently I am in the process of obtaining more old photos made by someone who worked in Chiang Mai & Chiang Rai end 1980's. The sad thing is that begin 2010s the construction of new government buildings have started about 8km west of Nan town. So most of the once new government building are not really used anymore, although the police station is still in use.
