Sight of Sumida River in Edo - A lovely Eisen print of a ferry crossing the Sumida River, at a narrow stretch, on a winter day. Passengers are huddled against the cold, some wearing straw coats to protect from the snow. The background is the silvery world of trees, fields, and gardens all covered in snow. Magnificent!
