Title

Japan, 1951: Election Day in Tokyo

Subject

People-Politicians; Government

Description

Election Day in an industrial area of Tokyo shows political representatives using megaphones as 'loudspeakers' as they describe the virtues of their candidates. Each party representative awaits his turn. One candidate is fined for spending over $3,000. on election expenses! Because all Japanese are literate we can more easily understand why 90% exercise their right to vote. --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.
