War and People, 1940-49, volume 2, published by Asahi Shimbun, Tokyo, 1995, 27.5 x 21 cm.

In pages 50-51 is the scene when the British diplomats and nationals alight from the train and are waiting to board IJN Tatsuta Maru on July 30, 1942 at Yokohama Port for repatriation as the beginning of exchange for Japanese nationals living in the enemy states. Here most are plainly dressed except the lady on the right. Matched with handbag, hat and gloves especially for this departure, she wears a dress with Japanese floral pattern. Young in her twenties and fashionable, she could be from a well- off family, perhaps of a senior consul or wealthy businessman.
