The Messageries Maritimes (Maritime Transport ) Building

Le Chantilly devant le Quai des Messageries Maritimes

On the Yser embankment, in the middle of the financial district (Bank of Indochina, Franco-Chinese Bank, Bank of Hong Kong and Shanghai), is located one of the oldest buildings in Saigon, built in 1862 out of red brick. It is that of the Imperial Maritime Transport Company, which became the Messageries Maritimes under the Third Republic.
Ships would travel up the Saigon River to the harbor, 83 Km. (51½ miles) from the sea. The docks and M.M. building were immortalized in Jean-Jacques Annaud's film “L ‘Amant” (The Lover), from the novel by Marguerite Duras.

Le Maréchal Foch à quai des Messageries Maritimes de Saïgon Messageries Maritimes

The Far-East is the exclusive domain of the Messageries Maritimes. Saigon is the company’s second home-port, from which radiate small-tonnage ships assigned to local lines. They provide service to Haiphong for the north of the country, as well as for the Poulu-Condor islands and their penal colony built in the 1880’s in the image of the one in Cayenne (Guyana).
During the ‘70's the Messageries Maritimes (MM) and the Compagnie Génèrale Transatlantique (CGM) merged to form the Compagnie Générale Maritime (C.G.M.).

(Café de la Pointe des Blagueurs)

Le Café

The "Joker's Point" restaurant (Restaurant de la Pointe des Blagueurs) was run by its owner, Madame Durand. From here one could dream while watching ocean liners arriving and departing from the "Messageries Maritimes" dock across from the restaurant.
The terrace faced the confluence of the Saigon River and the Chinese Arroyo.
On Sundays, the people of Saigon often had a drink or a light meal on the floating dock of the "Jokers Point"cafe, located on the Quai de Belgique (Belgium Embankment).

The Plateau

The Plateau dominates the rest of the city by several meters. It is located after Norodom Boulevard behind Notre Dame Cathedral. It is here that one finds the very exclusive "Cercle Sportif" club as well as the residences of leading colonial citizens of Cochin China and the Pasteur Institute.

Chasseloup-Laubat Street (now Nguyên Thi Minh Khai):

The Marquis of Chasseloup-Laubat was Minister of the Navy for the Colonies under Napoleon III. He founded the Protectorate of Cambodia and completed the conquest of Cochin-China.
Chasseloup-Laubat Street is one of the longest in the city of Saigon. It begins in the north at the bridge of Arroyo de l’Avalanche (Avalanche Creek) (Thi Nghè), runs along the Saigon Botanical Gardens, crosses the width of the city and ends at the line between Saigon and Cholon. In going through the central part of the city, the street borders on one side of the old Governor General’s Palace, now the Palace of Independence. It also passes in front of the Collège Chasseloup-Laubat, a high school built in 1875.

Chasseloup-Laubat College

Lycée Jean-Jacques Rousseau Saïgon in the 70's

Since the ‘70’s, the school has officially been called: “Etablissement de l’Enseignement Général du 2e Degré” (General Establishment of Secondary Education), “Lê Quý Dôn”.
In 1930, Marguerite Duras, (pen–name of French author and playwright Marguerite Donnadieu) would study at Chasseloup-Laubat and received her degree there.
At the end of the ‘30’s, it would be Prince Norodom Sihanouk of Cambodia’s turn.
