Korea, Part Two – Photographs taken in 1968 & 1969

I took these photographs during 1968 and 1969 when I was in the U.S. Army stationed in the Republic of Korea for thirteen months. 

On 3 September 2016, I was contacted by a representative of the National Archives of Korea, a branch of the federal government of the Republic of Korea. The National Archives of Korea were interested in acquiring my Korean photographs. I was honored by their request, and I donated approximately 900 original color and black-and-white photographs to the Korean people. 

On 2 February 2017, I went to the Republic of Korea's San Francisco Consulate. Jung Yoon-Ho, the Deputy Consul-General welcomed me; I gave him the film and associated documents. The film was then sent to Seoul via diplomatic pouch.

Below are some of the photos that I took while in Korea. The National Archives of Korea expertly scanned and digitized each image

San Francisco, from Cole Valley to the Mission District: 16 July 2017

This ramble started at La Boulangerie de San Francisco on Cole Street. It was then straight up to Tank Hill, and the route continued to Kite Hill. We descended Kite Hill via a circuitous course and then walked east on Eighteenth Street through the Castro District; passing Mission High School in the Mission District. We had a quick bite to eat at Taqueria Cancun on Mission Street. After which, we accessed BART at the Sixteenth Street Mission BART Station.

These four houses were constructed in 1876; the houses are on Lexington Street in the Mission. These dwellings escaped incineration during the 18 April 1906 earthquake and fire by being located less than one block from the fire's area of destruction. Click on the image to see the full-size photograph.

The distance traveled was approximately 4.4 miles (7.1 kilometers). The cumulative elevation gain was about 995 feet (155.5 meters). Mile markers are displayed on the GPS generated track. Click on the image to see the full-size map.
