Could you help me identify this photograph?

enter image description here

All I know is that it was taken shortly after World War 2.

  • Welcome to the site. That's a kind of fun question/puzzle that is also nice to have here.

I'd say it's the International Military Tribunal for the Far East (IMTFE or Tokyo Trials) from 1946. Compare e.g. the wall pattern elements between your picture and this one (source: Wikipedia):

  • Yup. The bench rows are even identical.

  • +1. The wall patterns are actually a mirror image, but that's just because this image has been flipped (check out the MP arm bands).

It is the International Military Tribunal for the Far East.

Check the wall pattern and light: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:IMTFE_court_chamber.jpg
