“Bringing American Life to Tokyo: A Visit to Dependents Housing” showcased the life of a military housewife, Mrs. Hayes, in her new apartment. On the right page, the photographs included a closet full of ironed clothes, a shoe rack hanging on the bedroom door full of colorful shoes, the cupboard, laundry, dresser, and Mrs. Hayes setting the table for tea time. The left page showed Mrs. Hayes and her friend Mrs. Arthur getting ready to go to a party in evening dresses, reading in the afternoon, leaving the apartment building, and heading to the beauty salon in the car.
