Photos of Colonial-era Korean cities

A few years ago I posted a zip file of photos of colonial-era Korean cities which has disappeared from hosting sites repeatedly - hopefully this link (to a 80mb or so zip file) will be a little more permanent. The collection features over 300 photos taken of cities all over Korea between the 1910s and 1940s.

Wow, that is an amazing set of historic photos. Thank you for sharing!

Nice collection. I could help you archive (and display) it permanently and safely at Wikipedia, but we would need information about the photos copyright status (author, date, source, etc.). Would you have those?

Michael,
Glad to be of help.

Piotr,
Thanks for the offer, but unfortunately I don't have information about the photos - A Japanese reader pointed me to a Japanese site where they were posted several years ago.
