Wearing the traditional long white ‘Ao Dai’ tunic this young female student is on her way to college on her bright yellow Vespa.

The little ‘Vespa’ motor scooters first appeared on South Vietnam’s roads in the late 1950’s and by the mid ‘60’s were everywhere. They were relatively cheap to buy, easy to maintain and got plenty of miles to the gallon. Also women found them particularly attractive in a wide range of pretty colors to suit their fashions.
There was even a Vespa Assembly Plant just outside Saigon where the little vehicles were put together from all the constituent parts shipped in from Italy.
