About Me

Adalbert is a forum for me, to post ephemera, photography, poetry, occasional travel notes, and various spontaneous motions. Cover photo: Parsonage where my great-grandfather spent his early years. Taken near Liegnitz, Silesia, ca. 1870.

The Treaty of Kanagawa


Marker commemorating 150 years of USA-Japan relations, Portland State University Campus, Portland, Oregon. Well, the black ships showed up of their own accord in 1853, and I understand that not all 150 of the years following the Treaty of Kanagawa went smoothly.
