Keelung 3 [Kiirun]

1945 Keelung

Dark heavy smoking on the center right I believe is the Keelung Post Office

The Keelung Post Office bombed to smitherens. Color images before it was bombed can be found on the Keelung1 page.

April 1946 photo of the bombed Post Office

A larger image of the photo above can be found on the taipics/boats1 page

This Life Mag photo I believe is from around 1949. Notice the Post Office rebuilt. (or erhaps this photo is pre-war image ?)

The Post Office, once a beautiful structure, was eventually torn down and replaced. Too bad for Keelung.
