Laughing Over Tea

The tea pot and tea cups look contemporary; if you saw them in a shop, you'd never guess they were almost a century old.


This photo is from an album Elstner Hilton compiled in Japan between 1914 and 1918.


Elstner was my spouse's uncle.


While Uncle Elstner sometimes annotated photos that required an explanation, he never dated the pictures. So all we know is they were taken between January, 1914 and December, 1918.
