Some Fun Items from Yashica c1962

A fun little find recently. Yashica's Sailor Boy found on a vinyl shopping bag from around 1962. Looks like it was a promotional item from Yashica and features the name of the dealer on the reverse side of the bag. The bag stands about 14 inches tall and about 6 inches wide. Made from heavyweight vinyl that has stood the test of time!

Looks like Yashica had first drawn these cute girls around late 1958 or early 1959. They appear individually here and there in sales brochures for the Japanese domestic market. The girls are not named as best as I can tell so I’ve decided that “Ya”, “Shi” and “Ka” fits nicely. The best I can do with a translations is: Camera Store in Matsue and Izumo “Ota Metrology Shop”.
