GEISHA LEANING ON SNOW SHOVEL
You can see another nice variant image from the same photoshoot at Naomi no Kimono Asobi's photostream here : www.flickr.com/photos/kimonoasobi/3384031500/ This is a nice studio image of a Geisha named EIRYU, who along with so many others, made fortunes for the owners of the Geisha Houses, photographers, and the postcard-sellers who peddled huge amounts of their photographs to both native and tourist alike. Photos such as this, with odd or unique content would always catch the eye. The snow…
Genroku Style Travelling Clothes 1907
