Saigon 1966

I've been straightening out the collection of old photos and albums here recently and, having finished up on my mother's pictures, started in on my Aunt Dotty's (Dorothea Page). Here are several from the time she spent in Saigon in 1966, while she was there with Battelle doing research work for the CDTC (I think they were cataloging Vietnamese boats).

These are all at the Arc en Ciel, a popular nightclub for Americans in the Chinese section of Saigon. Many of are a singer only labeled as 'Karen' with her band; I would assume they are Chinese. Whether local or from somewhere such as Hong Kong, I have no idea. My aunt seems to have been friendly with Karen, anyway.











Presented just as a look at that time and place.

Hand Covers


These are mockups of a couple cover ideas  for the fourth and final DONALO'S DESTINY book (which should be out before the end of the year). I am not sure which I prefer. Or maybe I'll go some other direction.

But I definitely want purple. :)
