I don't have a lot of pre-WWII postcards, although I'm always looking for some that aren't priced too crazily high. Last month I lucked out and found a couple of Miyo Azusa on ebay, which made me very happy. So, to celebrate, here are a couple of my favorites.

Here are the new Miyo Azusa photos. She was an otokoyaku from the 1930s. I tried to take a photo of the back of one of them as well, but my kitty was getting jealous....

A postcard from "Ivan the Clever" (Snow, 1928)

I haven't been able to place this one yet, but from the lyre mark and writing right-to-left, I'm pretty sure it's pre-war or at least 1950s. I wonder if the 59 is the year?

And I'm cheating a bit with this one, because it isn't pre-war, but it's a signed photo of Yodo Kaoru, come on! It has to be displayed♥

This is the prize of my collection: A signed photo of Kasugano Yachiyo. It was 3000 yen, but I bought it half-off during a sale, so I figured I could justify it! Hanashishuu (1958)
