Visiting Japanese diplomats tour the Washington Naval Yard
The Japanese Embassy visiting Washington, D.C., having been welcomed at the Senate already in the week, toured the Washington Naval Yard under the escort of its commander, Captain Franklin Buchanan. They toured workshops, saw a live firing display of rifled cannon and other ordnance, and sat for a photograph. (By John Osborne)
