WISTERIA BLOSSOMS -- Portrait of a Flower in Old Japan

Ca.1892-95 hand-colored lantern slide by T. ENAMI. Wisteria in Japan is usually linked with Temple and Geisha views. With one click here, you may see a few that I have posted : www.flickr.com/search/?w=24443965@N08&q=Wisteria&...

 

This particular slide is posted in association with this old stereoview, where it appears as a large albumen hidden away in a studio prop ! www.flickr.com/photos/24443965@N08/2503086491/

 

For more about old Meiji-era Photographer T. ENAMI -- the undisputed KING OF THE STEREOVIEW in Old Japan -- poke around on this website. The nitty gritty of his life and times actually starts about 1/3 of the way down the SERVICES page : www.t-enami.org/
