Each folder corresponds to a single original exhibit panel. There were five panels in total, with four possessing titles: "They Work Hard," "They Play Hard," "Musical Skits are Loved by Koreans," "Children's Playground." The bracketed text on the back of the photographs were written on the panel alongside the photograph.
These photographs show images of children and other citizens of Korea, as well as American ROTC officers. The Koreans are participating in their daily routines, such as farming, relaxing at home, and attending the market. The children are performing musical skits, playing, cooking, and helping with daily chores. The context is possibly a visit made by the officers to Korea circa the Korean War. The photographs were originally mounted to boards as part of an exhibit.
