So far, I've seen over 500 of his Japan slide images (all beautiful and interesting), and another 500 or so images of the world that were not taken by him.

Based on known numbers from his different periods and negative stock, I estimate there are at least a couple of thousand possible Enami titles to collect in Lantern-slide format. I would certainly not be surprised if others have whole boxed sets filled with many images I have never seen before.

The non-Japan-subject images were photographed by various tourists during their ROUND THE WORLD cruises, then processed and colored at Enami's studio in Yokohama when the cruise ships pulled in for the JAPAN leg of the trip.

Although not included in this flickr set of actual Enami-photographed slides, I have posted an example of one of the Enami Studio-processed WORLD images here : www.flickr.com/photos/24443965@N08/2394508589/

For those interested, I've also gathered a few of his albumen paper PRINTS and STEREOVIEWS into Enami-dedicated Flickr sets, although many of the same 3-D views are already mixed in with others found in the general STEREOVIEWS set. If you search "T. Enami" on flickr, you will get 100s of his images, both on GLASS and PAPER, and in 3-D.

All images in this slide set are by Yokohama photographer T. ENAMI. He printed these images on glass from various format 2-D and 3-D [half] negatives, including reductions made from full-plate negatives originally used for making large albumen prints. The dates run from 1892 (when his studio began) until about 1925-28, when his studio was freshly rebuilt after being destroyed in the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923.

After the quake, in less than desirable conditions, he continued to produce slides and prints until his death in 1929. However, this flickr set contains mostly pre-quake images --- most being from the ca.1892-98 period.
