Fun Link Friday: Photos of Meiji Japan

Recently grape posted an article featuring thirty photos from the Meiji period taken by photographer Kozaburo Tamamura (1856-1923) that were auctioned off in Britian in 2013. Ranging from wooden bridges and young women in their daily lives to shopping streets and wintery river scenes, they capture an old Japan that we usually only read about in literature or imagine from prints.

Check out the rest of the photographs at the original article here! They’re all fantastic.
