Series; Thirty-six Views of the Eastern Capital
Thirty-six Views of the Eastern Capital - Great design from a series pairing kabuki actors with famous views of
Nihonbashi, 1862 - Handsome view of the Sumida River from the Nihonbashi or Nihon Bridge. A procession of firemen is crossing the structure, with a brigade standard called a matoi visible at right and a ladder in the center, used to perform acrobatics during the parade. Someone has removed the dotted cloth tied around his forehead and tossed it into the sky, where it hangs weightless next to the ladder. An interesting subject, nicely detailed.
