Collection Overview

Katherine Wolcott and her uncle, Robert Hull Fleming, compiled this photo album on their visit to Japan in 1909. Part of a larger Asian trip, the two stopped in Japan and collected photos, postcards, bookmarks, and other materials. Fleming was a graduate of the University of Vermont, and in 1929 Katherine Wolcott helped to fund the construction of the Robert Hull Fleming Museum in memory of her late uncle. This album, a memento from their trip, was part of Wolcott’s own collection.

                    Judging by the large quantity of women present in the building, this residence is most likely a tea-house or establishment catering to entertaining men.

                          The picture presents an interesting merging of Japanese and Western culture. The clothing, advertising, and signs point to the presence of western influence in the city.
