The collection is composed of three Japanese woodblock prints presumably from the late 19th or early 20th century showing female prostitute travelers and a ship of good fortune. Also included is a letter from E. H. Sawada to Bates College sociology professor Anders Myhrman explaining the prints and the associated Japanese customs they represent.
The collection is open for research.
