This album of 105 picture postcards appears to be correspondence “from the battleground” between Tsubokura Monnosuke and Tsubokura JirĊ, both of whom resided in Yotsuya Ward, Tokyo. Monnosuke was enlisted in the Fifth Army’s Third Assistant Porter Company. The majority of these postcards are government-issue commemorative and soldier’s consolation cards, while twenty-five of them are “pin-up girls.” The 73 cards with legible postmarks were mailed between June 4, 1904 and April 15, 1906. A few of the cards are “to” and “from” other addressees and senders.
