Seoul.

Seoul was by far the most developed city by then but quite rugged nonetheless. A few shots.

Yeah. Seoul seemed quite rocky.

Here are a few more pictures of Seoul taken in the 1950s.



Seoul, 1957.

The best part seems to have been the "shopping area near Yongsan":

Great pics mussoda! I was unaware of this site.

I'll supplement them with more shots taken in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Judging by the pics I have, Seoul changed much during the 1960s. The effective modernization of the country was finally taking place.


These pictures were taken by Neil Mishalov in 1969.
