MOVING DAY -- A Domestic Scene in Old Japan by Okinawa Soba, A nice studio shot by KIMBEI KUSAKABE. Cute little girl with a doll helping dad carry a wall scroll for the living room wall. Interesting Kimono on all.
A staged century photograph of a farmer and his wife. The man wears the traditional straw rain coat ( 蓑, mino) and kasa (笠), a hat made of bamboo or sedge. Photographer probably Kusakabe Kimbei. Text and image via Wolfgang Wiggers on Flicker
