Yokohama. - Handcoloured photo panorama of Yokahama.

np c1890? Two albumen prints joined, 20x50cm, folded and mounted on an album leaf. Excellent clear prints with subtle colouring. ¶ Yokohama became the western capital of Japan - westerners in Nagasaki were confined in numbers and location - and the Bluff - now Yamate - where the diplomats and wealthy built their mansions was the obvious spot for making a panorama of Yokohama. A gathering - small as it is - of them from the 19th and early 20th centuries might be a useful guide to the growth of the city: they are taken from spots very close to each other. Of course it was a city that ceased to exist in 1923.
