"Here is a small photo collection of ways in which goods and people were moved around in 1963-1965. I was intrigued by how things moved and stationed myself in a spot to photographed whatever came by. The photos were all taken in the same area, probably along Zhongshan Bei Lu. This is more part of the general history of Taiwan than anything to do with the military, a different slice than one might usually encounter.
I don’t know how much had changed in the ten years between my tour and yours, but now when I cruise around the roads on Google today, it is just incredible."
I believe I saw most of these methods of transport still being used during 1973-74, though probably far fewer of them than were around ten years earlier. The exception would be the pedicabs. I think they had been banned from the streets of Taipei by then.
