Raymond’s Brain: My Baachan #15, Picture Bride

A personal history by Raymond Nakamura

This drawing is based on a photograph of my Baachan on the day (I think) in 1908 when she married Shinkichi Nakamura, ten years her senior, whom she had just met in person. This might seem oppressive, but such arrangements were common not only in Japan but many parts of the world.
