Propaganda Kimono

Emperor Hirohito leading a procession of military men on horseback from a 1934 film clip. A similar segment is included in the American propaganda film, "Our Enemy: The Japanese", 1943.

There is an antique quality to this print that suggests a date early in the century but the single-wing planes are from the 1930's.The battleships are all 1920's vintage but most lasted until WWII.
