HIKIFUDA. - [Maruyama Kaikokan].

Osaka 1904 [Meiji 37]. 26x38cm colour woodcut. Old folds, still rather good. ¶ This is something you don't see very often: a speeding Japanese girl having fun. That expression is the well bred girl's version of a broad grin. The pair in the background look bewildered. This hikifuda advertises silk rather than bicycles but they do go together well. These hikifuda - small posters or handbills - were usually produced with the text panel blank. The customer, usually a retailer, had their own details over printed, so the same image might sell fine silk or soy sauce.
