―Good old Tokyo - Showa photo album
"DC6B" JAPAN AIR LINES flight attendant who assembled in full force
Haneda Airport mid-1950s Takahiro Shibuya

This exhibition titled "- good old Tokyo - Showa photo album" of the 20, Showa generation is remarkable, and see thing which copied life and manners and customs of people living in changing Tokyo into.

Democratization policy by the Operation Army was sent Japan which faced the end of the war on August 15, 1945 to, and reform to let you change previous sense of values 180 degrees was carried out in sequence. It was the time when we had begun to explore that life of people changed busily and enjoyed freedom of democracy society which we had in our hand from confusion of defeat for the first time.

River space becomes useless, and highway construction concentrates cityscape of Tokyo on river which does not need site collection with the decline of water transportation function when it is past the 30, Showa generation. We were lonely, and Shibuya thought that we liked fishing since childhood, and fishing village scenery of Tokyo underwent a complete change every moment to be and we wandered in Tsukiji and Shinagawa and seemed to begin to take photograph. We continued photographing in those days because film was precious while having you hand over from acquaintance of newspaper publisher and magazine company.

When the world calmed down, the spread of radio and TV advanced, and room that enjoyed entertainment such as movie or popular song was born. The after the war first domestic civil aviation business began in 1951 while it looked like it, and Haneda Airport showed serious turnout in people to want to have a look at airplane. Because one-way rates from Haneda to Osaka were larger than university graduate starting salary at the time, we did not seem to be able to use casually. Still it was big leap so far that airplane which was available only in military purposes was available as one of the transportation, and admiration of people to flight attendant who was airplane and star occupation was immeasurable. His camera captures the state well.

As for other display works, scenery that it is hard to imagine in today's us including people before Hachi-ko meeting with Nihonbashi before expressway is still built, Shinagawa before huge building group stands in a row, leisurely expression opens. We survive recklessly from the bottom of defeat, and scene that goes to the rich times, and has begun to walk of Japan is projected work group.
