Picture of the Day: Chemulpo Harbor In 1905

Chemulpo In 1905

This is a picture of Chelmulpo (Incheon) in 1905 via Robert Neff who also shares a story about the first western ascent of Halla Mountain on Cheju Island.

    Ah… this picture is way too clean and orderly. Surely it must be 1915, not 1905. We all know Korea wasn't this clean looking (or even civilized) until the Japanese annexed it!

    Note: The signs are in English. Even though the Japanese have not yet arrived; obviously there is a positive foreign influence in place.
