The footage is an excerpt from Kagayaku Kyodo (lit. Our Glorious Hometown), a film documenting Ichi-mura, Mitsugi-gun (today’s Mitsugi-cho, Onomichi City). The 8-minute, 15-second film is thought to have been commissioned by the local authorities of Ichiu-mura to record its local profile. Shown are the Onomichi Railway, which had services between Onomichi and Ichi-mura, the Western-style Ichi-mura Post Office and other buildings along the main street, the elementary school, a livestock market, Hiroshima Prefectural Kami-Ichimura Agricultural School (today’s Prefectural Mitsugi High School), tomb of the lords of Ikegami Castle at Honshoji Temple, Mitsugi Hachimangu Shrine, and other local features. Ichi-mura has historically been a way station on the route (known as Iwami-ji or Iwami Route) between Iwami Ginzan Silver Mine in Shimane Prefecture and Onomichi, and continued to thrive as a major traffic juncture into the Meiji era.
