Photograph of motorship Tokai Maru in Los Angeles Harbor, September 1930. At center, the large ship can be seen sitting in the open water of the harbor. A long, light-colored stripe outlines the upper rim of the ship's body. Near the bow of the ship alongside two anchors, the words "Tokai Maru" can be seen below three Japanese characters. A central mast supporting at least three flags can be seen at the center of the ship. Also near the ship's center, two large poles are connected by an arched support. Several people can be seen on the deck near the bow. In the extreme background, the harbor is visible.
