|Robert Short with Louise Gebhard Cann|
These photographs were given to me by Robert Short who is the young man in the images.
The older lady is Tanaka's widow Louise Gebhard Cann, an author Tanaka met in Seattle and married in 1917.

I find these images fascinating, no only do they show pictures of a family member in 1960 they also show a time that has since gone. These photographs were found in Mr Short's attic stored for 30+ years in an Ilford Print box–I wonder how many digital images will be so easily rediscovered in years to come.
