18 x 9.25” brown album with a partially clear front cover. Through the clear pocket there is a photo and text which reads: “Eighth United States Army Korea. A C of S G-2 Department of the Army Far East Tour 9-13 January 1953.” There are twenty-six pages, each page consists of two to several photos in a composite shot, and the first page of the album is a key to photos which has been divided into sections such as The Better Side, The Villages, Agriculture, Korea’s People, War Torn Korea, Combat Scenes, and MI Activity, encompassing 44 photos, although there are around 81 black-and-white photos in the album in total. As these categories suggest, there are photos of Korean children and people, villages, markets, and people working the land. There is also a photo of a Korean funeral procession. These are then followed by photos of combat scenes and military activity in the country: fighting in villages and streets, directing air strikes, using smoke generators, mortar firing, and scenes of first aid and breaks taken during the fighting. Outside of fighting, there are touching photos of Mass and chapel services being conducted in Mung Dung-Ni Valley, Thanksgiving Day spent at the forward outpost, ration preparation for the South Korean Army, and evacuation of wounded. Photos measure between 3.25 x 4.5” and 9.25 x 7.25” and are accompanied by typed annotations. The photos are all printed on the glossy paper that makes up the entirety of the album. On the back of each of these pages is a note which reads: “These photographs were reproduced from official Signal Corps Library prints and are not for publication until released by an Army PIO.” Numbered images 25-30 seem to be missing. There is a large corner chip to the last 2 pages of the album.
