▲ The interior of the museum displaying the photos of Seoul in 1950s
The museum at the University of Seoul (UOS) held a photograph exhibition called Seoul’s memories in the 1950s. It was originally planned to be open to the public starting from June 5 to Sept. 30, but the museum has decided to extend the exhibition until Nov. 9 because of popularity among visitors. The museum is open from Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a one hour lunch break from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. except on holidays.

The exhibition is about lives in Seoul in the 1950s. The lives of people in those years were focused mainly on the maintenance of their livelihoods. Seoul was much less-developed than today and people suffered from extreme poverty. The 1950s were also when the Korean War broke out and suspended. Thus, numerous people became victims of the war and went through tough times.

Furthermore, a number of buildings and houses were ruined. The photograph exhibition accurately shows the surroundings in those years: pictures of people in shabby clothes trying to cross a broken bridge surrounded by devastated buildings and more.
