70221-0019 - Soba Delivery Boy


Outside Showa 1920s Unknown
A delivery boy wearing a happi coat, balancing six stacked bento boxes stands in front of a soba (buckwheat noodle) shop. The sign on the right reads Tempura. The noren (doorway curtain) shows the restaurant is open for business. This card is from a series called “Nihon Fuuzoku” (Japanese Customs). The printing quality is not so good, but the series gives a great view on daily life in Japan during the early Showa Period (1925-1989).
