Korean War Photos Album [Vernacular Photography].
Korea: nd [circa 1950-3]. Unique. A collection of 38 photos of base life during the Korean War (1950-1953) Mostly comprising of groups of airmen on an unidentified airbase, with several shots being panoramic vistas of the base showing tents, huts, anti-aircraft emplacements, an airman sitting on a number of bombs with F86 Sabres in the background, aircraft in flight, terraced rice fields, members of the local population and some scenes of what appear to be R&R spent in Japan. All in good condition, some bearing pencil annotation to the verso, others a numerical stamp presumably denoting some kind of censor approval. An interesting little collection of candid snapshots allowing some personal insight into an all but forgotten conflict. Item #8971
