Comments - Terrific depiction of the Meganebashi or Spectacles Bridge in Tokyo. The bridge is so-named for the appearance of the arches joining with their reflections in the water below, which resembles the round lenses of a pair of eyeglasses. The stone structure is packed with travelers on foot and in rickshaws, in both traditional and Western dress. Pleasure boats and cargo ships make their way along the river below, gliding under the arches. The towers of the Imperial Palace rise above the treetops at left, while Mt. Fuji can be seen in the center. A lively scene with wonderful detail.
