Sounds like he really wanted the porn, though.

I didn't know Japanese people liked to take so many pictures.
 
2022-06-29 6:50:48 PM  
Neat. Now go back and find the porn.

If you want a (fictional) peek into post-war Japan, check out one of Kurosawa's a little lesser known films, Stray Dog.  It's like an LA Noire type story that came out in 1949.  It's weird how familiar and foreign it seems simultaneously.

But yeah, these pictures are really cool.

What's this? Thought provoking, interesting and worthwhile content on the internet?  I don't want that.  Please tell me how some famous person set another famous person on fire with a tweet.

My grandfather took a lot of amazing photos during the Depression, but he lost his SD card in World War II.

Rice farming looks like it'd be sheer misery. Hunched over all day wading through ankle-deep muck. In the blazing sun too, because its no good growing your rice under a shade tree.
Is there any kind of farming thats more miserable?
Maybe cotton farming, cuz that shiats got a shiv & will cut you.

Wouldn't anything found on any medium be history?

*awesome photos. I just can't help being a degenerate.

Well I'm an ignorant person. I saw this picture and thought 'is that a rotating theater stage?'

I thought Les Miserables had pioneered that technology. Off to the googles

The mawaributai-a rotating section in the center of the stage-is a mechanism devised in the latter half of the Edo Period. The stage revolves with actors and stage settings in place, making it possible to quickly change scenes...introduced in the years 1715-1735

And I learned something

Check the "taxes" folder.

Wow.

I love historical photos, especially from average folks. That stuff is just awesome.

Wow. My great-great-grandfather was a photographer circa 1880s to 1910, but we have about three of his pictures. My grandmother gave away the rest as junk.

It is misery. Most Japanese women from that generation have posture like an inverted "L": 「

Back in those days a pixel was hard earned and meant something!

"about three?" Three seems like a really easy number to be definitive with.

Yeah, we almost had that happen. My grandmother had a bunch of old photos from the 1890s-1920s her brother took. My mom almost had a stroke when grandmother casually mentioned "Yes, I threw them all out, I didn't think anyone wanted them."

I have them all now, thank gods.

Older than you. Did you think someone went back to the Tokugawa Shogunate with an iPhone?

I'm glad he checked the card instead of immediately reformatting it to store porn.

Those were not taken by an average guy

I want to know how he pulled off the kabuki pics, I know he bracketed it, but he must have had some high end lenses
