WWII Japanese Postcard - Pushing a Cart Through the Mud
LIMITED ITEM. SURPLUS - PREVIOUSLY OWNED. Once they are gone, we may not get any more. Sold As Is - NON-REFUNDABLE.
Are you interested in WWII history or Japanese History, this is a great find for you. I have only found one other of this post card and according to http://john-adcock.blogspot.com/2012/08/wartime-japanese-postcards.html (John Adcock appears to me to be the most knowledgeable in this arena) - "In 1940, Premier Hideki Tojo authorized an elaborate illustrated volume, entitled Yasukuni no Emaki (Yasukuni [Shrine] Picture Scroll) to be distributed twice a year to the families of personnel killed in the war. The “Peaceful Kingdom” Shrine in Tokyo, dedicated to Japan’s war dead, was a familiar icon, appearing in all media, including paper money. According to later Shinto belief, the souls of the war dead gather at the shrine to be honored by their families and by the State. All the double-page spreads in the book closely resemble enlarged versions of the military postcards" like this one. Great find for history buffs.
Features of the Post Card:
- Condition: Good (A little faded and torn in 3 spots. Also the back is not in very good shape)
- Apx. 5.5" x 3.5"
NOTE: Over the years we have collected items with historical interest. The majority of our memorabilia is war related and we do not wish to offend anyone. We do not support or condone war but believe that historical items can remind us of our history, teach us about specific moments in time and hopefully prevent us from reliving any manmade horrific times in history. Any items we offer are intended for collectors of memorabilia and hopefully will be used for educational purposes. All of our collectables come from our own private collection via many X-service personnel and government auctions and have included Nazi party, Holocaust, Allgemeine and Waffen SS, Luftwaffe, Kriegsmarine, Kamikaze, Japanese, Australian, U.S., British items, etc. We should not forget our past but should endeavor to learn from its mistakes. It is our hope we never forget those that have died as a result of war. May god protect them.
