Two women in colorful kimono cross the Edo River bridge. The seals that this publisher uses make exact dating problematic, if not impossible. The printer Yokoi worked from 1936-1965. This print was probably printed in the 1940s or early 1950s. Note that #277, pictured in Hotei, bears these exact seals.
Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition.
