Japanese warships guard Siberian frontier Hsinking, Manchukuo (Manchuria): Warships of the Manchukuo Navy, built and operated under the direction of the Japanese, after Japanese seizure of Manchukuo from China. Ships are shown during maneuvers at the junction of the Sungari and Amur Rivers between Manchukuo and Siberia. Now that Russia has declared war on Japan, these naval units will probably oppose any attempt by the Russians to strike at Japan through Northern China, July 1945.

Ferrotyped prints are processed in such a way that they are shiny. The print has a sensitive surface, usually thinner, because it was put through a press while still wet.

Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
