Original Kuniteru II (1829 - 1874) Japanese Woodblock Print
Flourishing Brick Mansions in the Ginza District, 1873
Comments - Terrific view of the prosperous Ginza district, the street lined with modern stone buildings. Pedestrians share the road with rickshaws and horse-drawn carriages, laborers and messengers. At right, a foreign family rides in a black carriage, a young boy sitting next to his parents with a driver on a seat in front of them. Behind them, people climb the stairs into one of the elegant mansions. Blossoming cherry trees fill the boulevard, and birds fly overhead beneath blue violet clouds at upper left. A fascinating city scene with wonderful detail and color.
