Well, why not some photos of daily life in North Korea,  the 1980s taken by Magnum Agency photographer Hirojii Kobuta

It's interesting to compare this view of North Korea, presented by a renowned Magnum photographer, with the view served to me by Danish newspapers and television..I honestly believed all North Koreans wore uniforms and goose-stepped their way through life.

well, well...

*****
Panzer: Sdkfz 251/9 Stummel
A cheerful crew, probably photographed in Russia or the Balkans during the winter of 1943-44. The short-barreled 75 mm gun added some extra "bite" to Aufklärungs (reconnaissance) and Panzergrenadier units when facing the enemy in their Sdkfz 251/1's, armed only with MG 34 or MG 42 machine-guns.This is the early model Stummel, with a cutout in the armor plate of the 251 to make room for the gun. Later (1944-45) versions omitted the cutout to simplify production, placing the gun and mount higher up.
