Subject: Homes, August 1955

In the countryside along the edge of Tachikawa Air Force Base there is a dwelling in the lower left side. Children are standing outside, posing, five boys. Three girls are on top of the curved concrete roof, partially covered with grass. There is an empty clothesline.  The shadow of the photographer is in the lower right. Above the shadow are the base barracks—long, two-story structures with eight windows across each floor. It has been 10 years.
