About 150 photographs within an album of images likely taken in Manchuria under Japanese occupation. Most of the images are of Japanese soldiers posing in full dress uniform or of Japanese soldiers conducting work. Included are also many photographs of Japanese women and children happily posing for the photographer. There are no combat photographs but a couple that show a tank rolling down the street of a town and one of a town burning in the distance.
