Picture of the Day: Establishment of the Red Cross In Korea

July 13, 1919 — The Provisional Government of the Republic of Korea establishes the National Red Cross in Shanghai. Korea’s Red Cross, originally established in 1905 by a decree of King Gojong, had been merged into the Red Cross of Japan by the Japanese colonial regime. Korea’s government in exile revived the relief agency to manifest the country’s independence and held its first general meeting in November that year.

    Mad photo skills for 1919 if I may say. ;-)

    Anyone is real stupid if they think that is a regular photo from 1919.

    It was obviously made on a Æpple Mæcintosh using Ye ol’ Photoshoppe pre-beta release.
