Old friend Marc told me about this photo that may have been taken sometime during the 1950s.
I don't remember this sign at all when I was there in 1973-74 and I'm wondering where it was located and what direction it was facing. I assume it was in or near the east or west compound. The arrows on the sign provide some clues, showing that the Club 63 and the hospital are to the left, with Finance and the commissary to the right. But the sign on the building to the left of the sign appears to read "Hospital," suggesting this was before the Naval Hospital was built in Tien Mou. Someone once commented here that the hospital was originally in one of the compounds until the new one was built. Was the Club 63 ever located somewhere near the compound area instead of just across the river and to the right of the Grand Hotel?
