A sad sight. It's very dangerous that people are living right on railway lines and opting to build their slums there. I've also seen similar images of a Manila slum where trains cut through. Something has to be about it.

Bangkok slum will dissapear within 5 years, its becoming less and less , most of those pictures I see are very old. The very old klong toey picture I saw above is changing as well, it is the biggest slum area in Bangkok, today they are building skyscrapers and new fresh luxury apartments in that area.....Time changes, so why show old pics from the early 90s on here??

Well thats just it....Slums aren't what they use to be, as far as numbers go.
This thread wouldn't be without those old pics....I understand that things have changed, ...alot. ( this is a great thing! )

It's not my thread, but I imagine everyone wants to see these "slums" or former slums...let's just be specific...like my Bronx threads..."Then and now"
NOTE in your post the status of the area to date...just to clear up any confusion.

And updated pics of any slum that has been turned around for the better is not really the point of the thread..

We want slums, so there has to be outdated pics (since very few exist). Nobody specified old or new...Just slums ( which to me includes areas that are rebuilding or have been rebuilt. ) I think being labeled as a slum is kinda timeless...It's that first impression that sticks with you...(EX.) I'll always know that The Bronx was once the slumiest spot in NorthAmerica, eventhough It no longer is, I will always have this impression.

Making an already long post short. We just want slum pics..old or new.....
Just be clear on the current state of the area

Dude, unless you're talking about mountains, it's harder to find a "countryside" than to find a city in Korea since there is no municipality or city that has less than 15,000 people. They all moved (or were forced to move) into commieblocks.

Small correction: that's not India, but a famous photograph of a train supposedly taken in Tongi, Bangladesh, after some sort of world Islamic conference.

At the very least, its not an Indian train, but Bangladeshi, as the model of the carraige and paint scheme belies

I have a slight fascination with slums. I'm not saying I want to live in a slum of course not. There will ALWAYS be slums no matter how much city governments try to "clean house" because there will always be poor people and poor people have to live somewhere.
