Taimei Elementary School from the canal Tokyo 1929

The stylish Taimei Elementary School 中央区立泰明小学校 in Tokyo’s Ginza / Yurakucho neighborhoods, seen here soon after its construction in 1929. The school survives to this day. However, the canal seen in this photo (the Edo Castle outer moat) has since been filled-in. See: Canals of the Ginza: floating through time on Tokyo’s central waterways 東京江戸「水の都」
