Uncommon vintage glossy 8 x 11 photo of Gen. Douglas MacArthur giving a salute, signed in the lower border in fountain pen, "Douglas MacArthur." Annotated on the reverse in an unknown hand, "Tokyo, Japan - 1946." In very good to fine condition, with scattered light creasing and some rubbing to the emulsion. After WWII, MacArthur's headquarters were located in Tokyo, where he helped Japan to rebuild itself following the devastation of war; overseeing this redevelopment, MacArthur was effectively the interim leader of Japan from 1945 until 1948. A desirable, unusual pose of the celebrated general from an important period in world history.
