On the 13th of February 1946 Kageyama Koyo's third son was born. His given name was Yoshihiko but everybody called him Yochan. The times were tough and there was very little food. As a result of malnourishment in those years, he was a little weak and he died of ill health on April 9th, 1951, aged five. His father kept a memorial album of all the photographs he had taken of him which are published here for the first time, fourteen years after Kageyama's own death. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
