The same photo as the one numbered 14-35, showing a canal leading to Negishi from Asakusa and Imado. Many passengers took boats along the Sumida River to visit the red-light district of Yoshiwara. The chokibune boats were not roofed and so must have been different from those shown in this photo. The cottages on the left may be boat houses. Most of the canals ware filled in when the Yoshiwara district was abolished in 1958.
