Outside Meiji 190s Other
Japanese reservists take leave from their families at a railway station during the Russo-Japanese War (1904–1905).

Published in the British illustrated weekly The Graphic on July 2, 1904 (Meiji 37). Art by British artist Frank Dadd (1851–1929).

Original text: “Off to join the colors: Japanese reservists at a railway station. The Japanese women are proud of their husbands going to the front, and do not weep at parting with them—at any rate not in public. Occasionally, however, they wipe their eyes with their sleeves when their feelings master them.”
