FLASHBACK Going Home Rough-hewn boards sketch the path across a graveled river for a man "wending homeward his weary way after a strenuous day in the rice fields." The photo by Eliza Scidmore-writer, photographer, geographer, and the first female board member of the National Geographic Society-ran in the July 1914 Geographic. Scidmore loved Japan and made the first of many visits to the country in 1885.The last occurred in 1929, when her ashes were interred in a Yokohama cemetery. - Margaret G.Zackowitz t Flashback Archive Find all the photos at ngm.com.
