T. ENAMI in NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE -- September 1922

Hey, Okinawa Soba, the photo credits Gertrude Beasley --- NOT ENAMI ! Please do your homework before posting this stuff !!! OK.... The photo is from, and not by Ms. Beasley. Gertrude was famous for traveling around the world, buying up photos she liked, and passing them on to the National Geographic Society without mention the photographers she bought them from ! The NG editors were usually (but not always) very careful about the use of by and from when adding credit lines. See the cutie-pie…
