Honey basket" (video production: Sakatsu Gallery)
Honey basket is a manure pond. (Also known as "honey bucket.")
This layout section work is a special freight station in Saitama Prefecture with freight trains and special freight cars in the 1950s, when Tokyo also still had many pumping latrines.
At the time of, manure was a valuable fertilizer, and it was collected in the city center and loaded onto special freight cars called "To 31", which were then transported to Tokorozawa area on the Seibu Line for distribution to farmers in the surrounding area.
Before the distribution, the manure was transferred to a storage tank.
After this, the vegetables would be loaded onto a freight train and headed for Tokyo.
It is a very rare scene work that gives a sense of life and conditions at the time.
