The sign tells that the building has already sunk 18 of the 50 feet required for the four subtererrean stories. A maximum of 9 stories are permitted above ground. --This was the description to accompany this image as written by Arthur O. Rinden, the photographer. His description, which he referred to as a "script" was to accompany a slide show of the images for his family and others.

    Environmental Implications of Japan's Geology 04, Climatic implications, rain, Ginza, Tokyo.

    Climatic implications, rain, Ginza, Tokyo. -- Many Japanese rivers are short and have steep gradients flowing out of mountainous terrain. This assures that runoff from storms will be rapid, and where these rivers empty onto plains flash flooding may occur. Further adding to the flood hazard is a climate that periodically causes heavy rain over short periods of time. Rainfall of eight inches or more is not uncommon during the typhoon season, especially in southwestern Japan.

    Rinden Kanost Collection, China in the 1930s: Street Market

    Arthur Rinden's description: On the street is the daily market for vegetables, fish, and other things. Note that the buyer carries his own scale balances. There were 7 different scales in use in 1927. It was important that the food scales were used for food! Now, all scales are standardized by the national government, as is the money. When we came to China [1927] it was issued by the nation, the province, and even by local stores or pawnshops. Metal coins were 'rung' to learn if they were silver or counterfeits!"
