    Right:
    "To answer to and serve His Imperial Majesty"
    "Give this vote"
    Left:
    "The pure election must come from the home" 
    Extreme left is probably the name, can someone else figure out that says?

    REGARDS AL

    We are the Pilgrims , master, we shall go
    Always a little further : it may be
    Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
    Across that angry or that glimmering sea...

    Hi Alan

    It will be one of the pieces on display at the 2014 show.

    Haru-san,

    Far left is the name of a women's organization. I can't clearly make out the first two kanji, but they look something like chuu-choku [edit: or chuu-sugu?]; then followed by Fujin-Kai

    中直婦人会

    [edit: 直 can also be pronounced "sugu" as in 直刃, suguha [straight temper on a sword]. I'm not even certain I'm identifying the first two kanji correctly.]

    I don't think that second one is 直...

    Hello Haru san,

    Hmmmmm, I was thinking of 眞 which is the older version of 真 ... but that does not explain the "bo" down the center.

    How about Nakadori????

    中通婦人会


    Nakadori Wives Association

    Edit: I see the small り "ri" in the banner, just under 通

    Fujin can mean wife or adult woman........ There are very many homophones in Japanese, which compounds the difficulty factor in learning it. For example:

    fujin 婦人= adult woman
    fujin 夫人= wife
    fujin 布陣 = battle formation
    fujin 不仁 = heartlessness (仁 = compassion, 不= negation of)
    fujin 不尽 = "I'll write again" in the closing of a letter
