Interesting photo of a Westerner being pulled in a rickshaw by two Japanese rickshaw men. The mount reads, 'Geo. N. Mitchill, Jinricksha and Coolies'. At first glance, 'Mitchill' looks like 'Witehill' or 'Mitehill' but we believe it is 'Mitchill'. We have been unable to ascertain who he was and how long he stayed in Japan but the photo looks to be quite early.

 

Photographer unknown. c1870.

 

21 x 16.8cm.

 

In good condition. Mounted on large card. There is some minor damage to the top right of the photo but well outside the oval area. A few stray marks to the mount but nothing serious.
