Thanks for these -- really interesting. Hard to believe Cheongyecheon was like that. Looks like sights I've seen in Manila.

Apologies to those on the ASCK and BAKS lists for 
Dear friends and colleagues,

Sorry if this is old hat. But some 
remarkable photographs of 

an impoverished Cheongyecheon in 1965 - and a wealth of
other images of Seoul in the 1950s-70s - can be found here:

Many thanks to Tom Coyner and Alan 
Timblick for the link.
Already by 1982, when I first visited, there were 
scenes remotely resembling this. The 
pace of change in modern South Korea may be a cliché ,
but so stark a visual reminder can still make you 
Belated Samil greetings to one and all,
