Dear K-Flexx and other list members:

Perhaps you've already seen this, but you may wish to look through the 
online versions of the books _Sajineuro Boneun Seoul_/_Sajinu^ro Ponu^n 
So^ul_ (_Seoul Seen through Photographs_), Volumes 1 and 2, published by 
Seoul Metropolitan Government in 2002.  (There's also a Volume 3, but it 
covers the post-1945 era.)

I don't know specifically if there are any photos of Yanghwajin Foreigners 
Cemetery, but I have found, for example, numerous photos that I havn't seen 
anywhere else of the old streetcars in Seoul, something of particular 
personal interest to me.

Here are the links:
Volume 1: 
Volume 2: 
Volume 3: 

With kind regards,
Stefan Ewing
