Description

An interesting travel guide on Rangoon, published in Burma during the time of the Union of Burma (1948). This was before Burma went through military rule. The guide, aside from being a nice keepsake from that era, gives a good overview of Burmese arts, architecture, culture and religion, illustrated with black-and-white photographs. Also interesting is a series of advertisements at the back of the book, showing Burma’s post-war recovery.
