This album of 105 picture postcards appears to be correspondence “from the battleground” between Tsubokura Monnosuke and Tsubokura Jirō, 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.
