An Introduction

This collection came together because of a curiousity about the portrayal of life
in Japan during the early years of the 20th century.

The interest was primarily on how the people of Japan were portraying themsleves using photographs during this period
when past influences were present in their dress plus there was modernism, with a touch of militarism.
