The road to Edo

The road to Edo - a bitter, dusty journey -
one step at a time #haiku

. . . So that’s what we’re doing . . . We contacted Mark Sink, Denver’s photography maven;
it turns out that Mark’s great-grandfather, the New York society photographer,
James L. Breese, had a collection of nineteenth-century photographic prints from Japan.
On display is the Yokohama Album, a collection of hand-tinted albumen
photographs depicting studio and scenic views of Japan
during the Bakumatsu - Meiji period (1868-1912).
