Lot of 10 unused postcards from the same booklet (original owner sent 2 which we do not have), all removed neatly, all with minor corner wear, all lightly toned backs, all specifying DAIREN in English before captioning continues in Japanese:

  • "No. 1 THE LARGE PIER" including ship ..UMARU docked, long internal crease near left front edge.
  • "No. 2 NIHOMBASHI BRIDGE" with streetcar, cart & pedestrian traffic
  • "No. 4 OYAMA STREET" with carts, pedestrians & a bicyclist

If the English in the captions surprises you, recall that the British occupied it before the Russians, and consider that it was principally American & British money that financed the Japanese during that war!
