Link of the Day: Japanese Postcards from the Early 20th Century

Most of the postcards are dated between 1900s and 1920s.

The Digital Collections of the New York Public Library has released digitized versions of about fifty Japanese postcards, dated between 1900s and 1920s, My Modern Met writes. Most of the prints feature urban landscapes of Tokyo and Yokohama from the times when the Western way of life has not penetrated the local culture yet.
