Hiroshige III's Famous Places in Tokyo - Attractive design from a series depicting famous places in Tokyo, published over several years starting in 1868. Hiroshige III includes traditional locations and activities, as well as modern Meiji sights, such as Western style buildings and transportation. These lively scenes are filled with wonderful detail, carefully rendered with vibrant color and soft shading. A great look at the rapid changes taking place in Tokyo during the Meiji era.

The New Ryogoku Bridge, 1875 - Terrific view of the busy new Ryogoku Bridge in Tokyo, built in 1875. Carriages and rickshaws make their way across the bridge, flanked by pedestrians, travelers, and laborers going about their daily business. A pleasure boat glides beneath the wooden pilings, the water busy with boats of all sizes. Buildings line both shores, and the peak of Mt. Fuji can be seen in the distance at upper right. A handsome design with wonderful detail and soft shading on the water and sky.
