    “Shipbuilding enterprise of Japan has for these two or three years been one of the so-called 'sunny industries'. It was for a time the real center of boomy news, being reported, now as having attained the top rank in the world in the volume of launched vessels, and now as leading the world in the total tonnage of built ships.” (text). The present booklet documents the activities of Mitsubishi shipbuilding at their Nagasaki dockyard. Kimura describes his experiences during the month-long shooting session. Only two copies in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
