Hanoi Metropole Hotel
15 Ngo Quyen Street, Hanoi
Seventy two old postcards
depicting Hanoi, Hue and Saigon
In cooperation with UNESCO Hanoi, the Metropole is showing an exhibition of old postcards.
From the article in Nhan Dan Online:
Seventy two old postcards describing the daily life of Vietnamese people in the old time are now on display at Hanoi Metropole Hotel.
The display is divided into three areas with postcards portraying the beautiful landmarks and architectures of three main cities – Hanoi, Hue and Saigon, and the Vietnamese typical figures through the length of Vietnam history…
Beyond cultural aspect, the Metropole antique postcard exhibition is a great charity event to support Vietnamese children. The hotel will reproduce 1000 sets of ten selected postcards to sell at hotel’s La Boutique. One part of selling price from postcard sets will be deducted to contribute to Operation Smile.
