This site is dedicated to collect old pictures and drawings of Korea. If you have any pictures and want me to scan them to be put here, please contact me, so we can put them in the public domain. Most pictures will be from Seoul or Pyongyang, since most foreigners tended to live there. But nevertheless others might show up.
