CDV of Japanese Family Unusual photo of group on small bridge
Very interesting and unusual CDV of four Japanese men and two women standing on a small bridge. The young man on the right looks to be wearing a Western-style military uniform. We believe the second lady has appeared in at least one other photo by Beato and possibly the older man with his hand on her shoulder. Captioned, 'Japanese Family sent by Joseph Cowell form Yokohama 1873', neatly on rear. One would think Cowell knew these people personally if he was sending such a photo home.
Photographer unknown (possibly Felice Beato). c1873.
8.6 x 5.5cm.
In very good condition. A few small marks on mount. Sharp image with good contrast. p32120795
