Geiko Toba reading a Book 1938

Her name is written in hiragana on the reverse. Embossed "Dentsu" in the lower right corner.

This picture was taken by an unknown photographer before 1905, and was pretty beat up. But, I figured that, even in this simple pose with nothing much going on, that long hair and the look in her eyes deserved a spot on flickr.
