ENTRY ONE

TOKYO, JAPAN 1919

Government was becoming increasingly democratic, power was shifting to the National Diet (a sort of parliament). Industrial and modernizing advances were still progressing with as much speed as ever. Electrical wire-grids were constructed, in larger cities tram systems were on the rise...

Railways were common in many towns, as was cramped wooden housing. (Click to enlarge)
