  Photographs of the same title

This same photograph was carried in Nihon no Meisho (Beautiful Places of Japan) published by Shiden Hensansho in 1900 under the title, "Entertainment on a Boat at Sumida River," and also under the title "Boat Play" in Tokyo F?kei (Tokyo Scenery) published by Ogawa Kazumasa in 1911. This photograph resembles two photographs taken by Uchida Kuichi, but it is probably an Ogawa Kazumasa photograph taken around 1897. Says Ogawa in the caption to his photograph, "Since ancient times, the boat outing on Sumida River has been the most sophisticated of all pleasures".
