With the descriptive caption sheet. Kozaburo Tamamura (1856-1923?) began in the photography business with a shop in Asakusa, Tokyo in 1874. In 1883 he moved to Yokohama and opened a studio where he specialized in "souvenir photo albums" of Japan for export. He is regarded as one of the originators of "Yokohama Shashin" (tourist photographs). At the height of his productivity in the 1890s he produced albumen photographs as well as collotypes. These were often hand colored.
