Taegu City Snapshots, 1969!

Random street scenes, Taegu, South Korea, circa 1969.

Name changed to Daegu, April 13, 1981.


Why not!

The land of kimchi, bibimbap, bulgogi, stir-fried noodles. And don’t forget:

“You number 10 one cheap GI.”

What time BX open?”

Where BX means the Taegu Base Exchange.

Yes! America landed on the Moon in 1969.


I landed in Taegu City which was a lot warmer and had a lot more hospitality!
