Regarding lawyers and their practice: “…probabilities and plausible arguments involve no knowledge concerning truth, but trial and disputation and wrangling conflict and contentiousness and everything of that sort.” — Philo

On The Water
  Kim Chun Cha and her  delighted Shinsigae Department Store senior executive escort, 1962

The snapshots on this page cover the period 1962 1974. In the near future captions will be added for clarity. The snapshots on this page include subjects from Korea, Japan (Okinawa), and Taiwan. 

Kim Chun Cha (Solstad) appears often as does her husband, Peter. There are also a series of snapshots taken from the upper floor fire escape of the Naija hotel, a military R&R facility that served military members of the era, which show the funeral parade for the wife of President Park Chung Hee (Yuk Young-soo). One snapshot reveals a large vehicle (Hearse) bathed in yellow flowers bearing her body. She was murdered in an assassination attempt that went terribly awry. Walking closely behind is President Park Chung Hee.
