View from Quarters "A"

I've written at least a couple of articles about Quarters "A" where the Navy admirals resided during their assignments as Commander of the U.S. Taiwan Defense Command.  Pat Linder, the widow of Rear Admiral James Linder, the last USTDC Commander, wrote extensively about her experiences in the home in her excellent book "The Lady and the Tiger."

Taipei Scott, along with Larry Fields, who manages the USACC-Taiwan group on Facebook, recently visited the former Quarters "A" and Scott took this panoramic photo from the balcony of the building.  As I recall, the home overlooked the Shih Lin area.  You can click on the image to see a larger version.

Taipei is a much more modern city now, but the overall view is what I remember from more than 50 years ago. Thanks for taking the picture Scott.
