Photo Number 945

This is a snapshot from the antique shop in Solway Minnesota.
Foreign photo 1966 Solway antiques
  The photo was taken in 1966. Where?  What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

Update from Eastoak:
I found your blog today and greatly enjoyed. Thank you! And I've arrived at what I could give you some help. 
This "Photo Number 945" was taken on Atami, a resort town in Shizuoka, Japan.
The sign of a shopping arcade (right above) reads "Atami Ginza". A detailed photo of the arcade sign on the following blog (not mine) in Japanese, gives evidence.

I remember my cousins spent their honeymoon in Atami in 1980's. Incidentally, the shop on the left is a sweets shop, because the signs shows sorts of "yokan" (Japanese jellied sweets).

  1. I would guess Viet Nam. Perhaps Saigon given the date and the "Chinese symbols" in the signs.
