Comments - Terrific view of the Third National Industrial Exposition at Ueno Park in Tokyo in 1890, the grounds bustling with visitors. At right, the emperor passes under an arched entrance, accompanied by dignitaries in military uniform. In the center, a beauty takes the hat of the young prince as another woman beckons to him with a smile. At the women wear the latest Western fashions: a bustled dress with overskirt and fitted bodice, and a bonnet adorned with flowers and ribbons. The beauty at left carries a parasol trimmed with fringe. Behind her, a large torii gate leads to a shrine. Colorful flags and paper lanterns hang overhead, and the cherry trees in the background are covered with blossoms. A fascinating historic subject, beautifully detailed and colored.
