This postcard album is titled “Haeyuru kōshitsu,” which means “the Glorious Imperial House.” The album appears to have been compiled in Japan just after the Shōwa Emperor’s enthronement ceremonies in November, 1928. Photographs of the Meiji, Taishō and Shōwa emperors and empresses, artistic renderings of the various state Shintō ceremonies associated with Japanese kingship, the celebration of imperial matrimony, and the Crown Prince Hirohito’s 1923 visit to Taiwan are the main themes.
