The Defaced Passport



I've been looking for vintage passports, full of stamps, for a long time.  I don't know why, but they're really hard to find.  This isn't quite what I've been searching for, but it's a start.  A single page, a mining engineer, born in Japan, but with a very English name.  His father must have been living there when he was born.  It's hard to tell if he was part Asian with that weird bird cage drawing on his face, but his family, clearly, wasn't.
