Hello!

This photo came with a group of Japanese American photos I recently added to my collection. Unlike so many photos I have collected or dealt with it has an inscription. I wondered if someone might be able to translate for me?

The photo was taken by ' N. Igarashi ' of ' Odawara, Sagami ' Japan. The photo is housed in a photo studio cardboard holder and on the cover reads ' Photo Studio ' printed in English. I don't recall seeing that before with Japanese photo studios. The inscription is inside the folder.

With pleasure! The husband's name is Katou Takaou - Katou is the surname, ou is a long o - and the wife is called Tsuru. Underneath the names are their ages, 33 for the husband, 29 for the wife.
