Kuwahara kept his archive of about 20,000 images in a closet at his home and it was only due to the efforts of Araki Nobuyoshi that the value of his work became appreciated. The present anthology was based on an exhibition held in Tokyo in 1973 covering the years from 1930 to 1940. It was the first time that photographs from that period were shown and for many survivors of the war the book was a source of great nostalgia. Morooka was particularly interested in 'shitamachi' life and often included billboards, shop-signs and announcements in his compositions. Nine copies in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
