70612-0002 - Shinsaibashi Bridge


Osaka Taisho 1910s Unknown

Shinsaibashi Bridge across the Nagahori canal in Osaka, Japan.

The stone bridge in this image was opened in 1909 (Meiji 42) and replaced a German made steel bridge in use since 1873 (Meiji 6).

The white building is the Ishihara Tokeiten (石原時計店). This well-known retailer of watches moved here in 1915 (Taisho 4). Besides watches, the shop sold jewelry, and imported luxury items like cameras and musical instruments.

The Secession style 5-storied building was designed by Shiro Mitsuhashi (三橋四郎, 1867-1915).
