I went to a very interesting estate sale this morning. Home of an antique dealer. Bought over 40 photos, an old girl's series book from early 20th century, an old slate school tablet, and these stunning post cards.
I wish I could read Japanese or knew someone who could. I'd like to know what the characters say. I'm imagining it is the artist's name along with a caption. If anyone out there can translate I'd appreciate the information. I'd love to give credit to this work.

These woodblock print cards were produced by the Uchida Art Company in Kyoto, Japan. You can read a brief bio here. I have no idea how old these are. I'm thinking the 1950s or '60s. Simply a guess.
And this is the front of the folder the cards are in.
Again, if anyone stumbles upon this and can enlighten me with information I'd be thrilled.
