This unit contains four Tamamura, Kobe studio card mounted photographs. The photographs are oval and approximately 6 x 9 cm and 9 x 12 cm.

  1. The first photograph actually has two images. The card size is 8 7/8 x 6 3/4 in (22.5 x 17 cm). There is a faded silver "Tamamura, Kobe" embossed imprint at the bottom right. The two oval images are laid down (not in a recessed area) on the card. On the back of the card there is a manuscript note and the date March ?th, 1905.
  2. The second photograph has one image. The card size is 4 3/4 x 6 1/4 in 12 x 16 cm). The photograph is mounted in an oval recessed area. There is a sharp white "K. Tamamura, Kobe, Japan" embossed imprint at the lower right. No writing or markings on the back.
  3. The third photograph has one image. The card size is 5 1/8 x 7 1/4 in 13 x 18 cm). The photograph is mounted in an oval recessed area. There is a colorless "Tamamura, Kobe, Japan" blindstamped imprint at the bottom right. There are two copies of this photograph. They are identical except one has "Marguerita and agb" in manuscript on the back and the other has no markings on the back.

     
    The photographs are accompanied by 2 unaddress and unmarked studio envelopes. The larger envelope measures 15 x 20 cm. The smaller envelope measures 13 x 17 cm. These envelopes have the following studion address:

                         TAMAMURA 
                         No. 16, Sannomiya-cho, KOBE, JAPAN
                         PHOTOGRAPHIC STUDIO
                         T. TAKAGI, Proprietor.
    
    
    The photographs are not albumen photographs. I believe they are what is called silver prints.

    The larger envelope could have held the 3rd photograph and the smaller envelope could have held the 2nd photograph,

    The Tamamura studio in Kobe began the transition to T. Takagi in 1905. These photographs appear to represent very early work by T. Takagi as this transition occurred.
