This is a view of Nagasaki looking down over the foreign settlement and the port from halfway up Mt. Hoshitori. We can determine when this photo was taken by the two buildings shown in the photo: the dark two story custom building which was built in March 1876, and the second Prefectural Office building which was still under construction but soon to be completed in December of the same year. The white building on the right of the settlement in the center is the British Consulate.
