70216-0016 - Oebashi Bridge


Osaka Showa 1920s Unknown
Oebashi Bridge over the Dojima River in Osaka. A boat can be seen in the foreground. The large building is the Dojima Building, constructed in 1923 (Taisho 12) by Takenaka Komuten. The building with the dome housed Fukutoku Seimen Hoken (福徳生命保険). It was designed by Kingo Tatsuno (辰野金吾, 1854-1919) and Yasushi Kataoka (片岡安, 1876-1946) and opened in 1919 (Taisho 8). The first Oebashi bridge was built as one of five bridges (the others are Watanabebashi, Taminobashi, Horiebashi and Funatsubashi) when Dojima was developed during the Edo Period (1603-1868). It burned down during the Kita Taika conflagaration of 1909 (Meiji 42). The steel bridge on this photo was built in 1910 (Meiji 43). Construction of the current stone bridge was started in 1930 (Showa 5). It was completed in 1935 (Showa 10). This effectively dates this photo to the 1920s.
