Old, Old Sapporo

Apparently my Dad has turned into some kind of retro-Japanese-tourist-merchandise-ninja, because after the first English-language Sapporo guidebook (1988) and the 1965 Tokyo tourist guide, he sent me these awesome, ancient picture-postcards of Sapporo:

Dated who know's when, but basically - there's no TV tower and... well, it looks like there's hardly any buildings either. It's incredible to see the city, and to be oriented by Odori Park, but to not find any of the familiar landmarks at all. Bravo Stephen, I am officially freaking out.
