Dear KS list members:

If you will indulge me, I would like to thank Sun Joo Kim very, very much 
for the link to the Peabody Museum site.  Those photos are utterly 

Seeing images of Korea from any era prior to the present one is always 
rewarding, since the country has changed so completely beyond recognition in 
so many ways--even down to the absence of trees on the mountains in the 
background of some of the photos.

That said, for all the changes in clothing and hair fashions, in 
architecture and transportation, and in so many other visible ways, there is 
one picture in the collection of three women selling vegetables on the 
sidewalk, which looks like it could have been taken yesterday!

Yours sincerely,
Stefan Ewing
