USTDC Main Gate

This was the main gate to USTDC. You're facing east (more or less) here and just across the road to your left was the river. I don't recall the name of the road, but perhaps some kind soul can provide that in Comments.

Because I normally walked to work from the hostel, I very rarely went in or out this gate.

If you were to look to your right from this spot today, you would see the Fine Arts Museum.

According to a 1959 map of Taipei, the name of the road was Hsinsheng North Road.

Hi Don,
My name is Mike Ortiz. I was stationed at USTDC from 1973 to 1975 as the Navy Lithographer at the Print Shop. I remember Al Choy at the Photo Shop and Mr Chew, the Barber. I had a great time in Taiwan and the pictures brought back many memories. I'm back in my home town,Tucson, Arizona, and would like to hear from anyone stationed at USTDC.
