About This Image

Two unmounted 4.75 x 3 inch Albumen Carte-de-Visites, hand colored

In 1876 Rokuemon Sugiura, No. 6, inherited his family business, a pharmacy which sold photographic supplies since 1873. That year, he opened a branch of his family business solely devoted to photographic supplies in Tokyo, Nihonbashi Honcho. In 1882 he started investing in manufacturing plants, and developed the company known now as Konica, which produced the country's first commercially produced camera, The Cherry Portable in 1903. In 1894 the company published the photographic journal, Sashin Geppo. Portraits in Sepia, p.273.
