Akabane Bridge and Suiten Shrine in Shiba, circa mid-1840s - Handsome view of Akabane Bridge in Shiba with a rosy sunset glow spreading above the trees in the distance. Pedestrians make their way over the gracefully arched wooden bridge with three beauties carrying umbrellas. At left, the highest fire tower in Edo rises above a tree-covered hill, the street below lined with daimyo's mansions. An attractive scene with soft shading in the water and sky.
