Another pair of rank & file sendai of the proletariat just lounging about on a smoke break apparently.
Indeed sendai keenly partake in filling their lungs with carcinogens. These are not the familiar tobacco, of today, but more of a spiced incense-like concoction that sendai have grown fond of. The smokes are called lidos (lyedos) or, simply smokes, being they're not actually cigarettes in the classic sense. Naturally this also adds to the classic film noir sensibilities 'Whispers of the Deep' will have.
The fellow on the left is a Täppco model sendai. Täppco are known for their deco style toaster or radio head type sendai. This example clearly follows suit, though he has a very radiator kinda vibe going on too. Other Täppco guys can be seen here:[link][link]
The sendai on the right... he looks like a sneaky sneak, with his stylish feature obscuring hoodie.
More to come...
