有名なのは阪急電鉄で その構想は小林が海外視察とかで勉強した結果だと思うが、街を作り 街をつなぐ電車を作り、面白いのはその駅えきに娯楽や百貨店を作った。
The old leaflets and items in the Kobayashi Ichizo residence museum are interesting. As expected, the person who made Hankyu and Takarazuka is a big conglomerate.
There is Ichizo Kobayashi residence of Hankyu.
There is an old house of “Ichizo Kobayashi” in the hills of Ikeda, Osaka, and now it feels like a memorial hall where you can see the inside. But it’s interesting, or rather, it’s very interesting because there are flyers that are familiar to the people of Osaka.
Materials of Hankyu and Takarazuka.
For example, things related to Hankyu trains, things related to Hankyu department stores, things related to operas, things related to Toho, Nishinomiya stadium, things related to overseas travel, and many others. Kobayashi was a businessman in the Meiji era who built a railway in Kansai with his financial power, especially starting with a bank.
Overseas culture that I learned from overseas inspections.
The famous one is Hankyu Railway, and I think Kobayashi’s idea is the result of studying abroad, but he built a town, made a train that connects the town, and interestingly, made an entertainment and a department store at the station. Movies, amusement parks, stadiums, people’s means of transportation, stations, houses and entertainment, this created people’s lives and created a culture. And he can only do that as a banker. The same thing is repeated in this day and age.
Patterns such as chitashi are interesting.
Within that cultural flow, the designs on flyers, books, signboards, etc. from the Meiji, Taisho, and Showa eras are interesting, or rather, distinctive and interesting. Maybe people in the old days were delicate, but he has really good patterns and colors. Nowadays, the technology is excellent, so it may be easy to make, but in the past, it was analog, and the pattern of each character was wonderful.
There are also old photos.
There are also old photos, such as the old Umeda neighborhood, Hankyu Department Store like this, world maps, Takarazuka, and event guides. From Juso on the Shinkeihan line to Kyoto and Sonoda residential area sales leaflets. In Keihan, Hankyu and Hanshin used to be the same railway company, but after that, they split off separately, but now the coastal and mountainous areas are completely different, but… Did he start this Keihan Electric Railway because of such a past? I like him, who makes you feel history and has interesting designs.
