Photo #3328 – 6 August 1950 – Men from a Signal Company string a telephone line along a road somewhere in Korea.

On June 30, 1950, President Truman committed American ground forces to support South Korea against the invasion from North Korea.

The Signal Corps expanded its training facilities at Fort Monmouth to meet the need for technicians to install lines around the mountainous terrain. The photograph above shows some of the early work involved in creating a communications network in Korea.

Picture Perfect?

In this image from the Greely Expedition to the Arctic (1882), Dr. Pavy and Jens are seen skinning a seal. Of particular interest is the fact that this photograph had been modified in order to “clean up” the image. The pristine white snow and mountains behind Dr. Pavy and Jens are painted onto the photograph, obscuring the original background. Instead of undisturbed snow, the original image has a view of the camp, including clotheslines with the men’s clothing hanging from them. The lines around the edge of the image show where the photograph was to be cropped, removing part of the wagon and the dog standing in front of it.
