Enlarged view of the photo

Roofed boat taken at the bank of Imado River in front of Yumei-ro where Sanya-bori (moat) merges with Sumida River. The water is too shallow to allow the boat to float, which explains why the photograph is so sharp. In the rear is Mukojima, site of Ushijima Shinto Shrine and Chomeiji Temple. Found in the collection of Uchida Kuichi preserved at Nagasaki Municipal Museum, this photograph was verified to have been taken by Uchida in 1872. This is one of the copies later made and sold.
