Outside Meiji 1900s Nobukuni Enami

A group of komori on a country road in the early 1900s.

Komori were young girls from poor families who were hired by the year to aid middle and upper class mothers in the care of their infant. In addition to carrying the baby around, the komori would also assist a little with the household work.

Komori received food, lodging, clothing, and occasionally some money.

Dated to 1900-1903 by Enami specialist Rob Oechsle.

Original title: S 763 A group of baby-nurses on a country road.
