Title: [Line of children (orphans?) with American and Korean flags]

Date: ca. 1904

Place: Asia: South Korea

Type: Photographs

Description: Eighteen children standing at attention in the field. They wear mostly white jackets (and possibly pink or mauve tops) called 'chogori' and trousers called 'paji.' Some wear shoes called 'komusin' and the others wear shoes ('chipsin'), made of plant fibers. Two children carry a Korean and American flag respectively. These children - being mostly girls - might be orphans being raised in a Christian mission in or near Seoul.
