Photograph taken by Gertrude Bell in Japan, May 1903


Japanese theatre scene. Possibly - "In the afternoon we went to see Dunjiro play - he is the greatest of Japanese actors and WONDERFUL....we saw him in one act in which he sat in the same position all the time, just moving his expressive old head to listen to a long speech or to answer.".
