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 from Jonathan Stiles who did work & live in Nan during the 1980's. This is a 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. The sad thing is that begin 2010s the construction of new government buildings have started about 8 km 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. The location tag is the place where I think this building was.
