Summary expansion
The album includes 17 stock hand-colored rotogravure prints of tourist attractions and iconic scenes of Japan, including a street in the port of Yokohama, Itsukushima Shrine in Miyajimi in southwestern Hiroshima, Kintai Bridge in Iwakuni spanning the Nishiki River, nearby Kikkou Park, Mt. Fuji, Japanese women spinning silk thread from silkworm coccoons and harvesting tea leaves, geishas performing a tea ceremony, local people crossing a river in a small wooden ferry boat, and fields of waterlilies. The 19 gelatin silver photographs document the personal experience presumably of the former owner of the album, a Westerner who may have been visiting Japan for business or to visit friends living there. He appears in several photos: in one, he is sitting in a rickshaw, a woolen carriage blanket over his lap; in another, he is standing by a canal on which Japanese laborers use ropes to pull loaded barges. There are several photos of the interior of a house, including a dining table set for tea below a Japanese lantern, and several shots of deer grazing outside in a lush garden or park. The photographer also documented his visits to a temple and a torii or Shinto shrine. The final photograph is of a carved gravestone of Col. John Alden in a field, bearing an inscription in English
