Chrysanthemums at Dango Slope - Charming autumn scene of visitors enjoying a chrysanthemum garden at Dango-zaka or Dango Slope. At bottom center, a young girl points at the colorful blossoms growing along a low trellis as a women bends over her. The beauty behind her carries a Western style shawl trimmed with fringe. At upper right, a mother in a kimono holds the hand of her boy, who wears Western style knickers, jacket, and cap. An elderly man leans on his walking stick, bending over the child. At left, a bridge zigzags across a stream, with a large pine tree growing along the shore at right. Only the second time we've seen this attractive design.
