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.

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.
