No. 7 is entitled 'People living in Asakusa', shows beggars, prostitutes, and people on the fringes, No. 9 'Spread of Tokyo, part one' No. 10 'Living on the Water' is about people on houseboats, No. 12 is called 'Penetrating a market street', No. 13 'Spread of Tokyo, part two' & No. 14 is called 'Camera Reportage'.. All of these montages show a strong awareness of the social problems resulting from the rapid modernization. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
