Shiromuku Kimono 1910

A Japanese bride and groom, she is wearing a Shiromuku kimono and Tsunokakushi headwear, while he is dressed in Western clothes. Although this image is overexposed and silvered with age it still has a haunting beauty all its own. Near the bottom of her sleeve you can just make out the delicate white-on-white pattern of Cranes flying over water, woven into the silk of her uchikake.
