This collection is sometimes informally called "Warshaw Junior" by the staff and researchers.
Arrangement:
This collection is arranged by subject categories.

The material is similar to that found in the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, but no new material is incorporated into the Warshaw Collection.

Kusakabe managed a studio in Yokohama, first at Bentendori until 1881, then later at Honcho. His photo studio was well received by many, including foreigners.
