Side Streets of History: A Dutchman's stereoscopic views of colonial Vietnam

Jan George Mulder, a salesman from Haarlem, left a legacy of over 2000 stereo photographs, more than half originating from his time in French colonial Indochina.

John Kleinen immersed himself in this unique collection, determined to learn more about the images and the man behind them.
