River Kwai

Known as the Burma Railway, the Burma-Thailand Railway or the Death Railway, it was built by prisoners of war during WWII.  One of the bridges was featured in the book and then the film, "Bridge over the River Kwai".  The postcard shows the dangerous curve at Kanchanaburi, just beyond the bridge.

  1. It has been so many years since I saw that movie. It is time to order it again.

  2. I remember that movie. Alec Guinness.

  3. I would love to see this in person one day. I've long had dn interest in Vietnam, Burma, Cambodia and Thailand.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
