This post is part of a series in which we examine Jeju Island in the 1950s and 1960s as seen through the lens of photographer Kim Hong-in (1925-2004). These images were compiled by Jeju City Hall for an exhibition titled “The Way Jeju Was: Pictures of the Past.” Jeju World Wide has received permission from City Hall to republish a selection of these photographs to give our readers a glimpse into the island’s history, but please note that they are not to be reused or published in any form. Thank you. — Ed.
