More then 40 photographs of Rangoon’s iconic, colonial-era buildings in danger
of falling victim to Burma’s rapid development are to be featured in the artistic
coffee table book “Yangon: A City to Rescue.”
The large hardcover will include portraits of Rangoon residents and images
taken at historic locations like the Shwedagon Pagoda and inside the famous
Secretariat building that has been closed to the public since independence
hero Aung San was assassinated there in 1947.
