The Yokohama Photograph Company was established at No.16 in the foreign settlement in 1884 by Usui Shuzaburo (an apprentice of Shimooka Renjo)and his partner David Welsh. Usui seems to have been in charge of taking the photographs while Welsh took care of marketing. The name of art dealer Deakin Brothers is written on the sail of the boat in the centre. The two companies were located next to each other on the same lot.
