I am still trying to work out a periodization scheme for these cards.
When katakana was used, however, the “ten-ten” was retained (see card on left): From March 1st, 1918 through February 14th, 1933, Japanese picture postcards were printed with 1/2 divided backs, with the “ten-ten” in が (ga) omitted: This next card retains the “ten-ten” in “ga.” Nonetheless, it falls into Period III because katakana is used to write out “hagaki.” Because the front of this card is clearly postmarked “October 30, 1928,” we know it could not have been published in Period IV.This first example is postmarked “August 19, 1932.” The lack of a “ten-ten” on the “ga” indicates that it was issued before February of 1933.The front depicts a scene from Harbin, which had a significant Russian population in the early 1930s.Any messages needed to be written on the front, or picture side, of the card.Here is a postcard stamped with the date “December 27th, 1905.” It was sent from a Japanese colonial official in Taipei to Nara Prefecture. Here is the front of the postcard, which has both the picture and the message from the sender (this is a new year’s card for 1906).1/2 divided back: 郵便はき: February 1933-August 1945 Urakawa Kazuya 浦川和也.
“Kindai Nihonjin no Higashi Ajia, Nan’yō shotō e no ‘manazashi’: ehagaki no rekishiteki kachi no “ibunka” hyōshō” [The Japanese “Gaze” on the Peoples of East Asia and Micronesia: Archives Importance and the Other Race Representation, in the Japanese Picture Postcards]. One side of the postcard, the front, is dominated by a photograph, design, painting, drawing, or image.
Both countries were nominally sovereign and yet were governed by Japanese military and civilian officials.
Thus, it is not surprising to find that each nation, no matter how “fake” in retrospect, possessed distinctive flags, postage stamps, currency, and postal regulations.
After February 15, 1933, the “ten-ten” was added to the “郵便はがき” marking on the backs of Japanese picture postcards.
Here’s a postcard published in 1932, before the change in postcard printing conventions, but after the “Manchurian Incident”: This postcard was published in or after February 1933, which is evident from the “ten-ten” on the kana for “ga” in “hagaki”: This “1/2 divided back, hagaki” style card was published until the end of the war (August, 1945) After the war, “きがは便郵” was reversed to read “郵便はがき” as shown in this next card from the American Occupation Period: Some Japanese picture postcards from Periods III and IV do not have the standard 1/2 divided back “hagaki” mark.
Here are some more examples of undivided back cards from Period I: Some undivided back cards are military mail from the 1930s and 1940s.
