Then And Now Pictures of Grass Mountain, Taipei, Taiwan, 20th and 21st Centuries

We all seem to enjoy "then" and "now" pictures, but, thanks to the Roske family, the four  shown here were very striking to me.

Hopefully, there will be more photos in the future that we can add to what is shown here.

*Here are some more then and now pictures from 1969 and 2012.

In late August of 1969, these pictures were taken of our Grass Mountain station. They were then overlapped to show the entire site.

It may have been a stormy day, but the angle of this picture shows many changes at the old site.

The little day room is now a two story barracks. Also, the main communications building has been added onto in a couple of directions.

The back road entrance we used is now be closed.
Here we have the main entrance gate as it looked in 1969.

In 2010, just the front gate alone indicates one of the many changes to the place over the last 40+ years.

*Here are 5 more picttures from 1969 and 2012
