Photo Album of Cascade Beer Family Business

DATE
Notes: Taisho era

Japanese photograph album of a family business that sold Cascade Beer, with photographs of the family business, Geisha, soldiers, etc. One of the soldiers is wearing a rare Manchukuo (Puppet State of Manchuria) medal.

Beer was first test-brewed in Japan in 1853 by Koumin Kawamoto, a doctor of Dutch medicine, following a description in a Dutch book. In 1870, an American, W. Copeland, founded the Spring Valley Brewery in the settlement of Yamate, Yokohama. In 1872 in Osaka, Syozaburo Shibutani became the first Japanese to brew and sell beer.
