Vintage photo album - The Japanese Merchant Sailor 1/4







I bought two albums on Yahoo! Auctions about 3 years ago. They contain small photos, about 1" x  2" of a Japanese merchant sailor visiting various cities, in  particular Bordeaux, La Rochelle and New York City. There are family photos and many pics, of course, of his ships but no name!
