1950s Japan, Korea, Hawaii
On this page you will find some pictures that my father took in the 1950s, when he was traveling in East Asia as a member of the US Army Field Band. I will try to provide descriptions to the extent that I can. A few of these are from Korea, but most are from Japan. These photos were originally taken using color slide film, most likely kodachrome and ektachrome, but it was not possible to restore all of them with the software I have, so I made some black and white. The order is a bit random, but they are all from the same trip to the US Army Field Band took to the Far East around 1958.
