Yasui Family Collection

Caption by Homer Yasui: "Portrait of [Masuo Yasui] dressed in a kimono, with a long, knee length dark over-kimono, but it wasn't a montsuki, because there are no crests. He's wearing a straw boater. I think that this picture must have been taken in Japan when our family went there for a 2-1/2 month visit in the summer of 1926. Pictures of [Masuo] in Japanese clothing as an adult are otherwise non-existent."

c. 1926
