Pictures of late 1960s Korea
|I cannot but thank Dr. Andrei Lankov for me ending up using my precious (?) time for something else than dissertation writing after he tipped me of a wonderful collection of photographs from late 1960s Korea, photographed by Mr. Neil Mishalov, recruit in the US Army stationed in Korea in 1968-69, mainly in Ansan. |
Black and white photographs; those available at the moment are mainly from Seoksu-dong in Anyang, but more pictures from Anyang and Seoul will be available later.
Update. I decided to download a few of the thumbnails to my own diskspace as I did't manage to link them directly from Mr. Mishalov's site. (The site works fine nevertheless.)
"New Seoul Workshop"; everything from car repair to welding
Color slides; Seoksu-dong, Seoul etc. Seeing Seoul without the high-rise downtown buildings in color gives a strange feeling; aren't color pictures supposed to be of our time and not of some different past.
Inchon in February 1969
Seoksu-dong, Ansan, winter 1969
All the pictures are scanned from film, so the quality of the digitalized images is good. The final number of pictures will be more than 1000, so be prepared to waste some good time if you're interested.
I myself haven't had time yet to browse through the more numerous color slide scans, but they as well as the black-and-white ones are definitely worth a look.
