Out of the Archives: Communal Lunch

Maybe because I started looking for pictures today while I was eating my lunch, but this picture caught me. So many perms! It’s from USC’s Korean American Digital Archive. It looks like they’ve got some bad links, but nothing that smart members of the general public, or a determined academic can’t get past. Look for the subset of the collection that features people sitting on fences: lunch at pharmacy

More on the Korean American Digital Archive from their site:

The documentary record of the Korean experience in America remains dispersed and difficult to access. The Korean American Digital Archive brings more than 13,000 pages of documents, over 1,900 photographs, and about 180 sound files together in one searchable collection that documents the Korean American community during the period of resistance to Japanese rule in Korea and reveal the organizational and private experience of Koreans in America between 1903 and 1965.
