160301-0050 - Gathering Shells


Outside Taisho 1910s Ueda Studio

Two women gathering shells at the seashore at low tide.

This was a common and popular past-time in Japan until the water became too polluted.

Recently, this customs is making a comeback at places where beaches have been sufficiently regenerated.

This postcard was published sometime between March 1907 (Meiji 40) and March 1918 (Taisho 7).
