East Asia Image Collections

Overview of Collections

The East Asia Image Collection is an open-access archive of digitized photographs, negatives, postcards, and slides of imperial Japan (1868-1945), its Asian empire (1895-1945) and occupied Japan (1947-52). Images of Taiwan 台湾, Japan 日本, China 中国, Korea 朝鮮, Manchuria 満洲国, and Indonesia are included. The Collection is built around a core of visual materials donated to Skillman Library Special Collections by the family of Gerald and Rella Warner. Images unique to this collection include the Warners' unpublished slides and negatives , made from snapshots taken during their years of US State Department service in Asia (1932-1952). Rare materials include prewar picture postcards, high-quality commercial prints, and colonial era picture books. Each record in the East Asia Image Collection has been assigned subject headings, hyper-linked metadata, and, to the fullest extent possible, historiographical, bibliographical and technical data.

Japanese Imperial House Postcard Album thumbnail

Japanese Imperial House Postcard Album

This postcard album is titled "Haeyuru kōshitsu," which means "the Glorious Imperial House." It contains 78 picture postcards. The album appears to have been compiled in Japan just after the Shōwa Emperor's enthronement ceremonies in November, 1928. Photographs of the Meiji, Taishō and Shōwa emperors and empresses, artistic renderings of the various state Shintō ceremonies associated with Japanese kingship, the celebration of imperial matrimony, and the Crown Prince Hirohito's 1923 visit to Taiwan are the main themes.

T.W. Ingersoll Co. Stereoviews of the Siege of Port Arthur thumbnail

T.W. Ingersoll Co. Stereoviews of the Siege of Port Arthur

These one hundred images from the Russo-Japanese War are mostly set in Dalian, away from the battlefront. The lengthy descriptions on the backs, reproduced in the "description.text.english" field, display a strong pro-Japan bias. Russians are absent in the imagery and maligned in the text. Local Chinese purveyors of goods and services are featured as enterprising, eager, and well treated by the Japanese. Laudatory portraits of Japanese officers and Western war-correspondents are also prominent. Descriptions of major battles are found throughout the sub-collection. This complete set of stereoview cards was generously donated by Richard Mammana.

 Japanese History Study Cards thumbnail

Japanese History Study Cards

This set of 48 playing cards was designed to help children memorize phrases and terms related to "national history." They were published in October 1935, as Japan was putting itself on a wartime footing. The army was ratcheting up pressure on the Nationalist government of China by stationing troops ever deeper into areas south and west of the puppet state of Manchukuo, which had been under Japanese occupation since September 1931. The cards are thus all related to soldiering and martial values. It was published by the Jinseidō company in Kanda, Tokyo, and sold for 15 sen and promised to "make entrance examination preparation truly fun." These cards were generously donated to Skillman Library Special Collections by Richard Mammana.

 Pacific War Postcards thumbnail

Scenic Taiwan Book thumbnail

Scenic Taiwan Book

'Taiwan no fūkō' (Scenic Taiwan) 台湾の風光is one of many photo albums published in the 1930s that depict different areas of the Japanese Empire. This particular volume was published in Wakayama Prefecture in or after 1938, though it appeared in a less censored form in 1934. Its editor, one Yamazaki Kin'ichirō (or Kane'ichirō) (1897-1985), published several albums of Taiwan, Manchuria, and Hokkaidō photographs in this same decade. 'Scenic Taiwan' extols the good results of Japanese colonial rule, both in picture and in text. This digital version features the editor's translations of all captions, along with the original Japanese, providing a resource for studies in colonial architecture, discourse, and East Asian folkways.

Taiwan Photographic Monthly Periodical thumbnail

Taiwan Photographic Monthly Periodical

The Taiwan shashinchō 台湾写真帳 (Taiwan Photograph Album) was published monthly from November 1914 through December 1915, for a total of 14 issues. The 468 pages captured for this collection include reprints of photographs from other Japanese publications, and many unique photographs. The "Monthly" was published in Tainan by the "Taiwan Shashinkai" 台湾写真会 (Taiwan Photography Society). While the photographs themselves are of much interest, the generous captions provide researchers with a window into Japanese constructions of Taiwan in the early 1910s. The editorial team has translated dozens of selected captions, which can be fruitfully compared to those found in the 1930s album "Scenic Taiwan."

east asia image collection example item recordViewing the Collection

This collection includes two special features to aid navigation both within and across records. First, the record numbers have been devised so that results pages--the lists of records produced by searches or by clicking hyperlinks--automatically sort records into their various subcollections. Second, the link calledIdentifier.Zoom allows you to magnify images and to navigate within those "zoomed" images with greater ease than the Conent DM navigation tools.

 

Fields

The East Asia Image Collection makes use of the following metadata fields:

Title.English

Titles in square brackets are the editor's translations of Japanese titles, or assigned titles. Titles without brackets are transcribed verbatim from a record's source material or are the English titles provided in bilingual sources.

Each title is preceded by a bracketed 6-digit record number (i.e. [wa0018] or [gr0195]). Record numbers are in the Title field to facilitate sorting of records listed as search results. The two-letter prefix indicates a subcollection: gr=Warner Taiwan Negatives; lw=Michael Lewis Collection; nf=Scenic Taiwan; js=Warner Japan Slides; ts=Taiwan Photographic Monthly; and wa=Warner Taiwan Postcards. Four-digit numbers represent sequences within subcollections. Each subcollection begins with record number [xx0001]. The record numbers are NOT the numerals followed by a period to the left of the thumbnail on the browsing page. These other numerals, which are also next to the check-boxes, represent a record's position within the results page. Hence, "results" numbers change each time a user performs a sorting function or uses the "compare" feature.Record numbersare stable. They are used for citation and cross-referencing.

Title.Japanese

Japanese titles are entered verbatim from Japanese source material. Sino-Japanese characters (kanji/hanzi) are generally entered as modern characters, even if the source material uses older forms.

Title.Chinese

Chinese titles are translations of Japanese or English titles. They appear in brackets since they are attributed, and do not appear on the artifacts themselves. Chinese titles are being added to images from China and Taiwan.

Title.Korean

Korean titles are translations of Japanese or English titles. They appear in brackets since they are attributed, and do not appear on the artifacts themselves. Korean titles are being added to images from Korea.

Subject.OCM

The three-digit numerals to the left of each hyperlinked subject heading are Outline of Cultural Materials (OCM) subject codes. These are developed, updated, and maintained in the Human Relations Area Files (HRAF) at Yale University http://www.yale.edu/hraf/outline.htm.

Description.Critical

Information about source material added by the editor and/or contributors.

Description.Caption.English

Printed information connected to the images in the record. These have been reproduced (misspellings and idiosyncratic orthography/spellings included) as faithfully as possible. Translated Japanese captions are indicated by square brackets.

Description.Caption.Japanese

Printed Japanese-language information connected to the images in the records.

description.indicia

Printed information on the backs of postcards that provides information relevant to dating the postcard itself (not the image).

Coverage.Location

Place names in Pinyin. Romanized Japanese, Wade-Giles, Kanji, Hanzi, and other commonly used Romanized Chinese equivalents are listed here.

Description.Ethnicity

There are several alternative Romanized spellings for Taiwanese ethnic groups. The following are the most generally used spellings, and are adopted for this website: Han, Atayal, Bunun, Saisiat, Sao, Tsou, Paiwan, Ami, Rukai, Puyuma, and Yami. This field is also used for Koreans, Chinese, Japanese, and other nationalities if either people, artifacts, or a built environment connected with these peoples appears in the card.

Contributor

Names of Lafayette College students and faculty responsible for data input, translations, research, scanning, color correction, etc. In addition, this field lists names of experts who have provided content, criticisms, and other forms of assistance for a particular image.

Relation.IsPartOf

Provides a list of records that use the exact same image. Numbers in brackets, such as [ip0002], for example, refer to records in the East Asian Image Collection.

"BMC" stands for Busan Museum Collection. These numbers are taken from the eight-volume set published by the museum, Yu Sŭng-hun 유승훈. Sajin yŏpsŏ ro ponŭn kŭndae p’unggyŏng 사진엽서로보는근대풍경[The Looks of Modern Korea from Postcards].

"MFA" stands for "Museum of Fine Arts" [Boston]. These numbers are taken from the MFA website. The corresponding records can be located by entering the record number in the search box at: http://www.mfa.org/

"NCL" stands for "National Central Library" [Taipei, Taiwan]. These numbers are taken from the NCL website. The corresponding records can be located by entering the record number in the search box at: http://memory.ncl.edu.tw/tm_new/index.htm

Published images of the same or similar scenes, people, or objects, but shot from different angles at different times, ARE NOT included in this field. We are counting on users to alert the editor if these images appear in other publications, so we may create a "life history" of each image. Please send your identifications with citation information to barclayp@lafayette.edu and specify how you would like your name to appear in the contributor field.

Description.Citation

Author and Year of book, magazine, or pamphlet that contains the same "image." For this field, "image" is defined as the photograph that appears in the postcard, pamphlet or book. For example, if the photograph in a postcard appears in a book that depicts a differently designed postcard with the same photograph in it, we consider that a "match."

Format.Medium

Description of the material object captured by the digital image.

Creator.Company

Publisher, printer, or distributor of postcards, albums, or commercial prints.

Creator.Maker

Photographers, painters, and editors associated with original images or sources.

Format.Extent

Dimensions of source document (pages, postcards, prints).

Date.Artifact.Upper

The most recent possible date of the source document (the material object on the scanner).

Date.Artifact.Lower

The earliest possible date of the source document (the material object on the scanner).

Date.Image.Upper

The most recent possible date the photograph itself, later reproduced in an album or as a postcard.

Date.Image.Lower

The earliest possible date the photograph itself, later reproduced in an album or as a postcard.

NOTE ON DATES

It is difficult to isolate the precise date of publication for a postcard. However, formats dictated by postal regulations, cancellation marks, or written matter often provide upper or lower limits. For example, a "January 15, 1926" cancellation mark on a "1/3 divided back" postcard was published before 19260116 (Date.Artifact.Upper), but must have been published after 19070328 (March 28, 1907) (Date.Artifact.Lower). Limits are assigned to the images themselves (not the artifacts) when external evidence is available.

Example

Record [lw0081] (The eighty-first record in the Michael Lewis Collection).

Date.Artifact.Upper

1933-02-14

Date.Artifact.Lower

1918-03-01

Date.Image.Upper

1915-01-31

Date.Image.Lower

1915-01-01

This postcard was published between March 1st, 1918 and February 14th, 1933. The photograph reproduced on the postcard was shot in January of 1915.

Dates are rendered in the format YYYY-MM-DD to facilitate sorting. For example, if a researcher seeks a chronological sequence of images or artifacts produced by a particular keyword or subject search, clicking one of the date fields in the header row of the CONTENTdm results page will accomplish this task. The editors are still in the process of assigning dates to the thousands of images in the collection.

Contributors

If you have information about an image in this collection, either to identify its contents, report a sighting or citing in another printed version, or to suggest a revision to an entry, please consider collaborating on this project. Communications in Chinese, Japanese, or English are welcome. Send to General Editor Paul D. Barclay at barclayp@lafayette.edu. Please include your name, email address, title/position, and an image # or image numbers to identify the images to which you refer. The editor will do his best to verify as much of the submitted information as possible, realizing that many contributors will far exceed him in expertise and authority.

Technical Details

Photographs, postcards, negatives, and slides were scanned as high resolution TIFs (at least 4000 pixels across the long edge). Photographs and Postcards were captured using SilverFast AI 6 software and an Epson 4990 scanner, negatives with SilverFast AI 6.5 and an Epson v700 scanner, and slides with a Nikon 5000D slide scanner. No descreening or post-scan sharpening processes were used. Master images were converted to JPEG2000 for online display, and to JPEG for download.

The digital images are hosted on Lafayette College's local CONTENTdm server. The CONTENTdm software is what allows images to be searched, browsed, zoomed, panned, cropped, compared, and added to temporary collections.

Metadata was created in Dublin Core format using MetaDB, a web-based metadata creation tool developed at Lafayette College. MetaDB allows digitization projects to be decentralized so that many people can work concurrently on individual parts of a project, then assembled into whole collections, and exported directly to an asset management system.
