Scope and content

File consists of a set of glass lantern slides and an accompanying lecture script entitled "Japan. Land of the rising sun." The Rev. W.O. Fryer is listed as the photographer of one of the photographs, although it is unknown if he was responsible for more of them, as multiple photography studios are listed on the slides, so it is likely that Hambley amalgamated lantern slides from several sources in order to create this presentation. It is also likely that several of the photographs, especially those depicting people posed in a studio, are reproductions of originals taken by noted Japanese photographer Kusakabe Kimbei in the nineteenth century.

Alpha-numeric designations

The numbering of photographs within the file reflects the numbering system established in the accompanying script and included on the photographs themselves. As a result, where photographs noted in the script are missing (66, 87, 90, 91), those numbers have been skipped over in the P# system. Photographs from Accession 2006.045C have been integrated where they fall within the lecture script (92, 93, 95).
