Very nice hand-coloured albumen photo of Bentendori in Yokohama [Japan]. Kimbei's studio sign is visible at the upper right. Kimbei moved to Honcho-dori around 1889 so this photo is earlier than that. It may well be an earlier Stillfried photo that Kimbei acquired the negative of. The silk store Nozawaya can be seen on the left. Titled, 'BENTEN DORI STREET, YOKOHAMA' on mount.

 

Yokohama. Kusakabe Kimbei. c1885.

 

26.7 x 21cm.

 

In very good condition. Mounted on card. Minor wear at edges only.
