Subject:Japanese Photo Album-Help Reading Label
Posted By: Robert Wed, Nov 15, 2017 IP:

I have this large albumen photograph album from Japan. I'm hoping the label has the photographer's name but I can't read it!! I would appreciate anyone's ability to translate. Attached is a sample of album and 1 photo for reference.

Reading of Album Title:

日光山寫眞 販賣所  Mount Nikko Photo Shop
鉢石町        Hatsuishi-cho (Name of part of town Nikko)
小室商店       Komuro Shop

The name of photographer is not indicated.
In the 1910s and 20s these type of photo-albums were sold throughout Japan on touristic places like Nikko, Kyoto etc. as souvenirs.
