Diary Entry:  Jan. 1, 1954

"A quiet uneventful day.  Teruko-san off for 3 days to celebrate. Japanese children came to play, all dressed up.  B took pictures of them.  They brought Bob some cookies.

Students came in kimono to wish us Happy New Year but B in Osaka taking pictures.

  1. Happiest New Year's wishes, sweet friend! It's hard to believe, isn't it, that January is here once again? I love the images and ephemera you selected to kick off the start of 2013 (the little girl's kimono in the street photography scene is so vivid and beautiful!).

    From the bottom of my heart, I wish you and your family an incredible, happy, healthy, fun filled 2013, dear Ann!
