'Fireworks at Ryōgoku Bridge', No. 98 from Series One Hundred Famous Views of Edo

During the hot summer months, residents of Edo would often take to the Sumida River in pleasure boats to enjoy the cool air off the river. The Ryogoku Bridge was a center of evening entertainment.  In this beautiful evening view, pedestrians along the bridge and boaters watch a spectacular fireworks display over the river.  This woodblock print, in a postcard-size format was originally published in 1858, the year that Hiroshige died.  This is a later edition from c1930.  It measures 5.5" x 3.75".  Excellent condition, never framed.   P851
