Japan, hand-colored photographs, ca. 1880

New photographs of 19th Century Japan from the Samuel Jacobson Collection have been added to the server. This gift of 170 hand-colored albumen prints significantly augments the UCR/California Museum of Photography's collection of fine Japanese photographs. It is first being presented in digital image format, and will later be shown in the Museum galleries.

Initial processing of this new collection and brief documentation provided by Museum Intern, Norman Karlow, a senior at La Sierra University, Riverside.
