    We had a chance to uncover a real gold mine of historical 18th and 19th century pictures from Cambodia in the French National Archives. We will showcase them in this post together with material from some other sources. Follow our “photo novella” to be transported back in time and discover Siem Reap and the temples of Angkor as you’ve never seen before…

    Most pictures come from the Anom Archives : http://anom.archivesnationales.culture.gouv.fr/. Other sources will be mentioned with the individual pictures.

    Did you find some old pictures yourself? Then please share them in this post. Just make sure to mention the source.
