Dancing girl

Description

Collection: Willard Dickerman Straight and Early U.S.-Korea Diplomatic Relations, Cornell University Library Title: Dancing girl Date: ca. 1904 Place: Asia: South Korea Type: Postcards/Ephemera Description: A Korean 'kisaeng', or singing girl, dressed up for her performance. A 'kisaeng's' social position was among the lowest in the traditional Korean class system. Their daughters also became 'kisaeng' and their sons became slaves.

This is a photograph taken in a studio setting, produced for mass production. Source: Kwon, O-chang. Inmurhwaro ponun Choson sidae uri ot, 1998, p. 150.

Korean women on an outing

Description

Collection: Willard Dickerman Straight and Early U.S.-Korea Diplomatic Relations, Cornell University Library Title: Korean women on an outing Date: ca. 1904 Place: Asia: South Korea Type: Postcards/Ephemera Description: Two Korean women in traditional attire.

The inner and outer collars were symmetrical in shape, while the neckline and sleeve-ends were trimmed with a wide, white bias. The collar, ties and armpits were purple. This is a (hand-colored) photograph taken in a studio setting, produced for mass production. Source: Kwon, O-chang. Inmurhwaro ponun Choson sidae uri ot, 1998, p. 124.

Coreans to cut tobacco and the persimmons-seller

Description

Collection: Willard Dickerman Straight and Early U.S.-Korea Diplomatic Relations, Cornell University Library Title: Coreans to cut tobacco and the persimmons-seller Date: ca. 1904 Place: Asia: South Korea Type: Postcards/Ephemera Description: Regarding the right side of this particular image, tobacco was introduced around 1618 (Kwanghaegun 10-yon) to Korea, probably from Japan or by merchants who traded to Beijing. Clearly the main objective of the photographer was to capture the processing of the tobacco selling here, as evidenced by the onlooking and curious crowd on the left. The seller of persimmon pictured on the left plies an old trade. The persimmon is native in Asia and very popular in Korea. In autumn persimmons are seen everywhere in the countryside. It is one of the essential three-colored fruits that are used for the ceremony to commemorate ancestors. Dried persimmons are used to make a persimmon punch ('sujonggwa') which is a traditional dessert for Lunar New Year. Inscription/Marks: Image imprinted with legend 'Coreans to cut tobacco and the persimmons-seller.'

Corean man. Middle class

Description

Collection: Willard Dickerman Straight and Early U.S.-Korea Diplomatic Relations, Cornell University Library Title: Corean man. Middle class Date: ca. 1904 Place: Asia: South Korea Type: Postcards/Ephemera Description: A young man of the aristocratic class of the Yi Dynasty in full scholar's dress. He wears an ordinary overcoat (called 'topo' or 'chongjibok'); a black, wide-brimmed 'kat' (black horsehair hat); 'taesahye' (black silk shoes); and a string belt with a tassel tied over the coat. This again is an image taken in a studio setting. The early history of photography in Korea is very little researched, so it is difficult to attribute the image to one photographer. Inscription/Marks: Image imprinted with a legend in Japanese character. Pencilled inscription of verso: 'Corean Man. Middle Class.'
