color photos from war-time Korea

Hankyoreh has gotten hold of color photographs taken during the Korean War by a Korean-American who served as a medical officer in the US Marines. Once again it's startling to notice how one sees color photos differently from black and white ones. It is as if history had always been recorded in black and white, and once some events are shown in color they appear much more relevant.
Trams in front of Seoul Station in 1952, Namdaemum gate visible behind.
Interesting to see that the trams were painted green and yellow, which is the traditional coloring of trams in Helsinki.

Greetings What an intelligent and well balanced Blog
Congratulations. Keep up the great work.
Those streetcars (trams) are just like the ones I used to ride to university in Hiroshima back in the late
1970s. Same color probably same model.
Thanks for the nostalgia.
