Prisoner of War camp portraits

Category: Memorabilia
Double-sided frame


Here are two frames that tell a story about friends who were imprisoned in a Japanese Prisoner of War camp during World War 2.

The frames showcase portraits of the young men sketched on the back of American Red Cross food parcels.


To showcase and preserve the beautiful drawings, we made the double-sided frames from black bamboo moulding with little feet for easy viewing.

Years later, the Japanese Government invited the friends for a return trip to Japan. We included their tickets to complete the tale by using a double aperture mount.

Clear conservation glass with 99.6% UV block will help prevent the memories from fading.


These precious family heirlooms are now safely protected to keep the story of these remarkable men alive for future generations.
