The missing house - January 5, 2008
Last look at another vanished wooden house. This was one of the the most striking and best preserved outside of Ratanakosin.
The photos of the house below were taken on April 18, 2004.

A reader reports about the missing house: ...this house has a long history since King Rama 6 give this property to our family and we call “Bann Rachatewi”...
