More than 100 photographs and artefacts will be on show from February 2-15, giving an insight into life in the 36 streets of the Old Quarter during the late 19th-early 20th centuries.

Highlights include an exploration of the area's unique architecture and traditional two-wheeled carriages that once plied the narrow streets.

Historian Duong Trung Quoc said the exhibition would help visitors better understand the significance of the Old Quarter in Hanoi's history.

The precinct is undergoing major redevelopment, succumbing to expansion pressures of modern Hanoi.
