Photo Book of Ibaraki Prefecture Filled with images of buildings, industry and people
[Japan] Interesting and comprehensive book with a rather misleading title, 'Special Field Manoevre Commemoration Album', which indicates an album of military-related views. In fact, the book doesn't seem to have any military images except one of an ancient military manoeuvre. The military reference probably refers to Japan's then recent victory over Russia. There are photos of government offices, schools, women's patriotic society, agricultural/farming scenes, paper manufactory, sericulture views, saw mills, fisheries, silk filatures, sake breweries, soy sauce factories, rivers and bridges, shrines and temples, historical sites, noted people of Ibaraki and centenarians.
