Dear List Members,

I am currently researching Seoul's linguistic landscape, and for the diachronic aspect I am having trouble locating photographic archives which show street scenes 'through the ages' - in particular views of the same street, say Chongno, over a period of time leading up to the present. Any information re sources (western, Japanese or Korean) would be a great help.
 
As a second, related question: does anyone know when the first western signage ie in Roman letters was erected in Korea?
 
Many thanks in advance.
