The King Rama V Monument Antique Print (100 years Old, Grand Size).

On October 23 of every years, Thailand commemorates the lifetime achievements of King Chulalongkorn, Rama V, who successfully opened Thailand's doors to Western influences and the basics of democracy. King Rama V laid the major framework for a democratic government, freed the slaves, developed lasting links with the great nation powers of the time, preserved Siam's sovereignty, and started to build a railway.

The King Rama V monument, as can be seen in the print, was being eleborately constructed in France. The cost of building the monument at that time was 200,000 baht. The money to build the King Rama V monument was given as pool of money from people living in Siam. In order to thank people who gave money, the government had given them back gold, silver, and nickle coins, and three different sizes King Rama V Monument prints. The prints were printed in France.

About 93 years has passed by, the rare and magnificent prints have been unearthed. We are proudly to announce the three different size of the King Rama V Monument in antique prints with nice old-looked frame.

The Thai sentence below the picture of King Rama V monument on the print says "In commemoration of the Golden Jubilee Celebrations of King Rama V, Rattanakosin 127" (Rattanakosin 127 is in the year of 1909)
