1960s and 1970s photographs
|An anonymous comment tipped of the url to a bbs posting with lots of everyday neighborhood and school life photographs from 1960s and 1970s linked from various sources. There's no information about the photos, no dates nor places. Some of the place names I've looked up from the original source, in that case Donga Ilbo. The several pictures taken in schools were no doubt taken by a teacher.
A larger (but not much) picture opens in a new window by clicking the linked pictures below.
On the right: Dyeing clothes(?) and cleaning the floor (except the boys)
On the left: A comics shop, where comics could be read for a small fee.
On the right: The boys in front have lunch boxes, the girls behind eat cup ramyon.

About Kuwabara's Korea photography in English. I find out that Kuwabara was the photographer whose pictures first brought attention to the Minamata mercury poisonings.
And still wasting more of my time on googling, I find out that Kuwabara also took many shots of people living at Cheonggyecheon in the mid 1960s before it was wholly covered. (same site in Korean and in English). I'll save those for another post...
