KOBAYASHI  7.2 x 7.5 TO PRINT - 5.jpg

This is the last lipstick my Grandmother used in her signature red, there's not a day I can recall where she wasn’t wearing it.


Beauty care was essential to my Grandmother, as she was a Nisei Princess for the Little Tokyo Nisei week festivities in 1953. She was 24 years old in these images, the same age I was when I found them.
