"New Road, Bangkok" - May 6, 2006
Another New Road photo. Someone can pinpoint the location on the 2B Google Earth forum. And what is structure in the distance? At right is an enlargement. More vintage New Road images here.

New Road today - May 9, 2006
John Ross sent in these photos of the New Road location (above) and the Street Scene, 1902 (below).
John M. Baker writes: For what it's worth, the picture of New Road at must date from no earlier than 1933, since the car is almost certainly a Ford Phaeton model that first appeared in 1933. Note the distinctive grille and bumper.
