Description

This original old photograph is in poor condition with marks, scratches, stains and fading as well as creases and discoloration from handling and age.  The photo appears to have been previously mounted in an album as there is some torn paper from the album stuck to the back of the photo as well as at the corners.  The photo dates from the early to mid 20th century and was acquired in the historic city of Shizuoka, Japan near the foot of Mt. Fuji.

Size of photographic image*:
Height: 3.1 inches (8.0 centimeters)
Width: 2.0 inches (5.0 centimeters)
*excluding any mounting or border

Important notes:
To the best of our knowledge the photographic image offered with this listing is an original print and not a later duplication.  Age estimates as well as descriptions of the people and events occurring in the image are based on available information such as settings and activities depicted in the image as well as our experience with Japanese culture.  All photographs purchased from us are carefully sealed in plastic and shipped in a box instead of an envelope to prevent damage during transit.

Many of the photographs we list are uploaded to our Japan Vintage Photo Blog which is an on-line gallery of unique and interesting images of old Japan.  The purpose of this blog is strictly to share some of the wonderful photographs we encounter in the course of our work, and to provide a digital archive to preserve these images into the future.  If you purchase a photograph from us and do not wish to have a digital copy of your image displayed in the photo blog or archive then please simply send us an email indicating your preference and we will promptly remove the image.
