Helen who copied this foto copied also the text who belongs to it:
“Pretty maiko [apprentice geisha] turn their backs to reveal their exquisite obi sashes – their trade-mark. Teen-agers now, when they mature into geisha their sashes will be folded in back. At left is a sideview of a maiko’s large and deep obi. Obis symbolize the wings of a butterfly, and a young butterfly [a maiko] has larger wings in proportion to its body than a full-grown butterfly [a geisha].” [The remaining text is missing] From a Newspaper Clipping on the reverse dated, April 15th 1973.
