Sample of photos

These photos are part of a photo album, that was purchased from a Chinese vendor

In Tsingtao, China, in 1945 or 1946, by Lawrence Bell ( Kathy Bell Simpson’s Father), a US Marine, stationed there.

There are a total of 106 pictures taken between 1910 and 1928 in and around Matsuyama, Japan.

 The album was left at or near the air base, in Tsingtao, when Allied Forces took the air base. 

 We are trying to find who the album belonged to, and what is the common link between the pictures.
