Women in traditional clothing are washing clothes in small tubs at public washing place in Kamakura.
Before the general introduction of the electric washing machine, washing clothes took many hours and was extremely hard and tiring work.
This glass slide is one of a series of slides of Japan that was used by the New York State Education Department to teach students about Japan.
Old Photos of Japan aims to be your personal museum for Japan's visual heritage and to bring the experiences of everyday life in old Japan to you.
To enhance our understanding of Japanese culture and society I track down, acquire, archive, and research images of everyday life, and give them context.
I share what I have found for free on this site, without ads or selling your data.
Your support helps me to continue doing so, and ensures that this exceptional visual heritage will not be lost and forgotten.
