OT: Images of Occupation-Era Japan
Photographs of Occupation-era Japan, 1948-51, by John W. Bennett. Incredible to think that war's end is over 50 years gone now. A lot of the material here consists of his contemporaneous writings, which bear the dull echoes of the bureaucratese his position no doubt forced upon him. But Bennett's eye for composition more than compensated for his leaden pen.
