Large format photo of a Yoshiwara brothel in Tokyo Lovely hand-coloured albumen photo
Impressive and scarce view of part of the prostitute quarters in Tokyo [Japan]. Working ladies can be seen at each balcony for the length of the building. There are some more common views of the Yoshiwara area but this one is unusual. 'Une maison à Tokio (Yoshiwara)' is written neatly in French at the lower right on the mount.
Photographer unknown. c1890.

In very good condition. Some minor age wear in the sky just above the building. Also some minor wear to the mount. Overall very good.
