Western Ephemera


Japan Missionary Photo Album 1929-30's, Kyoto, St. Agnes. Photo album of black and white images taken by Upstate NY Missionary to St. Agnes Church School, Kyoto, Japan circa 1929 -1930's. The album is about 9"x12", and contains 47 photos glued to pages, and another 12 loose in an envelope. In addition there are two loose leaf sheets, with 2 additional photos, from another work of the same missionary that created the album. The photos are in very good condition. Not every page in the album is full, there are many blanks. I understand that St. Agnes Church remains to this day as it did when the images were taken. The name of the missionary is included in the loose leaf page along with some newspaper clippings.  SOLD

Kochi Tribune newspaper, America prepares to occupy Japan.Original U. S. Military newspaper entitled "Kochi Tribune"....published by the 25th Repl. Depot, Okinawa, August 23, 1945..I believe this one came from the U. S. S. Denver outside of Japan, although this particular issue doesn't identify the ship...front page headline "INVASION MIGHT READY"....just a week after the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, this issue profiles the activities as the U. S. army prepared to occupy Japan....has some tears on seams and edges, moderate additional general wear, but this original paper wasn't intended at the time to be preserved as a collectible publication!
