Taracol camp

Description

Collection: Willard Dickerman Straight and Early U.S.-Korea Diplomatic Relations, Cornell University Library Title: Taracol camp Date: ca. 1908 Place: Asia: North Korea; Unsan Type: Photographs Description: Americans Leigh S.J. Hunt and J. Sloat Fasset formed Oriental Consolidated Mining Company and bought Korean Mining and Development Company in May 18, 1898. The Oriental Consolidated Mining Company owned 10 gold pits in Unsan, Pyongan-pukto. Taracol was one of the pits in Unsan Gold Mine. Unsan previously was a small village with only a few households, but it evolved into a very different place through the mining business association with the American entrepreneurs. Between 1903 and 1938 the annual profit from the gold mining reached more than $12,000,000, but the backward Korean Royal government sold the Korean Mining and Development Company for only $100, 000. Had the Korean government not sold the mining owning right for a lump-sum payment, it could have achieved a price as high as $3,000,000. The mining by the Americans continued until they were forced to relinquish operations to the Japanese in 1939 Source: Yi, Pae-yong. Ku Hanmal kwangsan ikwon kwa yolgang, 1984. Hapter 2.

There are 48 pillars supporting this building. The inner ones are round and the other pillars square (symbolizing Heaven and Earth). During the Korean War the building was damaged, but it has been restored through funds from the American-Korean Foundation. Source: Adams, Edward B.

[Porter carrying clay pots strapped to A-frame on his back]

Description

Collection: Willard Dickerman Straight and Early U.S.-Korea Diplomatic Relations, Cornell University Library Title: [Porter carrying clay pots strapped to A-frame on his back] Date: ca. 1904 Place: Asia: South Korea Type: Photographs Description: This porter carries more than 12 various-sized clay pots, stacked safely in his A-frame. These jars, called a 'siru', were an important part of daily life. They were used to steam rice cakes. 'The jars are made in special kilns through a method of reduction: flames and air are mixed into a fierce heat. Pine twigs are used to keep the flames intense, and the kiln's smokestack and fuel-hole are closed to intensify the heat. The clay ware controls the humidity and helps purify the jars.' Source: Website www.lifeinkorea.com/Images/ tools/kimch508.jpg (viewed May 9, 2003) 'The human porter who was the most ubiquitous carrier of heavy loads, the A-frame on his back piled high with wood, vegetables, fish, seaweed, bamboo, paper, or pots and pans. It was said that a man could lift up to 250 lbs. with ease and 300 lbs. with assistance. With 100 lbs. on his back he could average thirty miles a day.' Source: Pratt, Keith. Old Seoul, 2002, p. 36.

[Three people on swing in the countryside]

Description

Collection: Willard Dickerman Straight and Early U.S.-Korea Diplomatic Relations, Cornell University Library Title: [Three people on swing in the countryside] Date: ca. 1904 Place: Asia: South Korea Type: Photographs Description: 'Kune', a Korean type swing. It is entirely common to see people ride such swings standing up; often two people will face one another as they ride. This picture shows an interesting scene in which one person sits on the swing, two standing on the shoulders of those below; above them a rather fragile looking branch bends under their weight. The tree, which has only one very strong branch, seems to be a perfect 'swing tree'.

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. A dancer is shown wearing a 'hwagwan' (a small crown decorated with flowers and jewels). The art of entertaining of the 'kisaeng' is analogous to the Japanese geisha. These professional entertainers were highly trained in the arts of poetry, music, dance, and other forms of social or artistic diversion. 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.
