My grandfather gave me these pictures many years ago.  They were taken by his cousin, a Navy photographer who went on to work for the newspapers.  The one is of Pearl Harbor from a negative he found on Yohmsuka naval base.  There are better copies of this picture but this is an original. The rest are of  the Japanese surrender, surrender of the Yohmsuka naval base to the USMC, street pictures of occupied Japan, Damaged Japanese Warships in Tokyo harbor. and caves in which the Japanese had workshops and shelters.
