Theater Street, Yokohama, Japan 05/28/1907 58 of 70

The building on the upper left is the Theater. See this view from the Omaha Public Library: www.flickr.com/photos/omahalibrary/3111295420/ I think this Theater was destroyed in the earthquake of 1923.

 

This is a collection of 70 postcards collected by John W. Millaway, 1st Sargent , United States Marine Corps, in preparation of the world circumnavigation by the Great White Fleet 1907-1909. He visited many of the ports that the Fleet would visit about a year before the Fleet. He collected these postcards for his girlfriend "Miss Miriam Purnell" and wrote her name on each card. Only one of the post cards was actually mailed. He also signed and dated each card. This is about one third of the postcards he collected.
