Original Ikkei (active circa 1870s) Japanese Woodblock Print
City Street Scene
Comments - Interesting view of a city street bustling with activity. At left, a rickshaw approaches the end of a bridge, with a vendor carry a basket of fish just ahead. Two beauties pause to chat while a couple of men loaf near the corner of a fenced paved plaza in front of a building. Warehouses line the water a left. A nicely detailed subject.
