Sometime at the turn of the 20th century, this house was built in Petchaburi Road Bangkok (Picture 1).


Towards the end of the 20th century, the house was donated to the Buddhist College in Ayutthaya. The wooden parts were stripped, transported to Ayutthaya 80 km to the north and reassembled. The concrete columns however were rebuilt at the new site (Picture 2).

At the original site of the old house, a modern house was constructed (Picture 3).

These photos, both old and new, preserve the memories of this old Bangkok home.
