Fall of Saigon

Lego Saigon Street Corner

This beautifully messy street scene entitled ‘Street corner of Saigon’ comes from Flickr’s Know Your Pieces, and it perfectly captures the jumble of detritus found on any number of East Asian street corners, with plastic stools, a broken moped, and a compressor all expertly recreated in Lego form. One fixture of Saigon’s street corners is notably absent, but seeing as the metropolis, now know as Ho Chi Minh City, is today a throughly modern and advanced megacity we won’t give credence to that old stereotype. See more of the way things used to be at Know Your Pieces’ photostream via the link above.
