The Russo-Japanese War was from 1904 to 1905. According to wikipedia, the fledgling Japanese military consistently attained victory over the Russian forces arrayed against them, which was unexpected by world observers. I extracted and colored this image from a picture illustrating a story written by Adachi Kinnosuke in The Washington Times, April 24, 1904. Without a question, this image is in the public domain.
