A master carpenter from Yamaguchi-gumi poses with his apprentice. The resemblance suggests that they are father and son. If this is correct, their family name could be Kumada. The master carpenter is holding a deerstalker hat and wearing leather shoes. They may have dressed up for the photograph. This photograph was taken at a studio with a backdrop, not on location, probably around 1897.
