Notes:
Forms part of Rosin album number 1. Page 25.
Title taken from label affixed to bottom center of mount.
This album, with covers of lacquer and ivory, was produced by a shop which used photographs by Beato, Von Stillfried, Kimbei, and others, without including their descriptions or numbers. Each photograph is described by a label affixed below the print. The work is almost certainly by A. Farsari, who owned the stock of all of these photographs in the 1880s. Kimbei kept some stock he had purchased from Von Stillfried in his own shop. Confusion and uncertainty regarding attribution of 19th century Japanese photography is well-discussed in published material.
Summary:
