Images of Korea

This is an image I found in the depths of the web archives. It's an image of Korea circa 1910. It is believed to have been taken months before the Japanese occupation that would last 35 years began.

The picture is supposedly taken within 10km of where we live now and from the main street in our neighborhood, I can see this mountain range. I think it's amazing how far Korea has come from those days.

**Update** In response to a "What am I looking at?" in the comments, I should make clear that this is an old Korean village. You can see the thatched roofs and the small stream running though the center and running off the bottom left of the page.
