Beautiful Vintage Portraits of Gaijin (non-Japanese) Geisha

Gaijin is a Japanese word for "foreigner," "non-Japanese", "alien" or "outsider". The word is composed of two kanji: gai (外?), meaning "outside"; and jin (人?), meaning "person." Here's a collection of beautiful vintage portraits of Gaijin Geisha from between c. 1900 to 1930.
