Scope and Contents

Typed mimeograph description on verso reads: "Street Scene. Pusan, Korea: Straw matting cushions the cement of a Pusan street that serves as a boudoir for this refugee family -- one of manby homeless families that bed down nightly in the streets of the Korean city. Refugees of all ages, from all parts of the war-torn country, sleep in a tangle of arms and legs, preferring a life on the streets of Pusan to return to the dangers of their destroyed home towns..."
