Even as Hanoi charges into the future with flashy new skyscrapers and brand-new metro lines, the capital manages to hang on to its traditions. Particularly in busy downtown neighborhoods like the Old Quarter, locals have taken a leap into the 21st century and yet old-school storefronts, ancient monuments and bamboo-toting street vendors still remain.

Our favorite Flickr user, manhhai, has uncovered a series of images from 1896 Hanoi which document the daily comings and goings in this same downtown neighborhood, providing a glimpse into a 19th-century capital with decidedly fewer tourists and less chaos than the downtown Hanoi of today.
