THE "GAY 90s" in OLD JAPAN -- Pretty Is as Pretty Does

You know...the 1890s when everything was fine and dandy if you were an American industrialist.... and especially fine and dandy if you were one of their sons on vacation in Japan !

Notice the overflowing joy and happiness beaming out from their radiant expressions. OK. Maybe not.

 

Anyway these guys are wearing some very pretty kimonos [yukata] for this "souvenir shot" of their visit to old Meiji-era Japan.

 

Specifically, they are in T. Tamemasa's photo studio in Nagasaki, Japan.

 

It brings back fond memories of when Okinawa Soba had his very first MIZUAGE ceremony --- the first of many, I might add ~ !
