Japan Geishas 1937

A Japanese geisha girl waves an American flag and carries a Japanese lantern inscribed "Black Ship Festival," to commemorate the 83rd anniversary of landing at Shimoda, Japan, of Commodore M.C. Perry, of the United States fleet, whose "black warships" (so-called because they were painted black) opened Japan's closed doors to the trade and commerce of the world, May 7, 1937. The geisha girl is standing on the exact spot where Perry first put foot on Japan’s shores at Shimoda. (AP Photo/James A. Mills)
