Everyday objects of contemporary Korean history 2
|Some new images from the net exhibition of everyday objects of contemporary Korean history at the University of Seoul Museum. (Notice that the museum site and the linked pics below don't always open well.)|
Slightly bigger photographs open by clicking in a new window.
Info/propaganda booklets "What is national tax audit" (kukse chosa) and "This is how our life has changed"
Grammar school textbooks from 1950-60s
A self-study textbook (1963); note the teeth painted in black
Pump organ, p'unggûm (there's nothing especially Korean in that; it must be a quite widely shared experience to sing to the teacher's pump organ accompaniment)
Middle school uniform and cap, high school drill (교련) uniform, boy's schoolbag and sport shoes
Girl's school uniform, shoes, schoolbag
A poster urging to register marriages: "registered marriages, protected by law"; the campaign was a joint project with Korean authorities and USOM (United States Operations Mission), which is (or was) I guess an agency channeling US aid.
