Description

Just before boarding a ship from Matsuyama to Hiroshima (on Shikoku) we were met on the pier by a Japanese soldier who had fought in the South Seas, been wounded, left for dead, found by American soldiers, and instead of being shot as he anticipated, was carefully cared for until he was well. 'Here is a present of fruit which I want to give you in token of appreciation for what your country's soldiers did for me.' --This was the description to accompany this image as written by Arthur O. Rinden, the photographer. His description, which he referred to as a "script", was to accompany a slide show of the images for family and others.
The images in the Rinden Kanost Collection were all taken by Arthur Rinden and conserved by his daughter, Margaret Kanost, and her husband, Richard.The material is presented here through the generosity of Margaret Kanost. -- Please see images ecasia000573 and ecasia000574 for detailed information regarding this set of images and about the collection, as a whole. -- Editorial assistant: Marcus Davis.
