130125-0049 - Umegasakibashi Bridge


Nagasaki Meiji 1900s Unknown
Umegasakibashi (梅香崎橋) at the Foreign Settlement of Nagasaki. The bridge was first constructed in 1869 (Meiji 2) to connect Umegasaki with Shinchi (新地). The ferro-concrete structure in this image was constructed in 1907 (Meiji 40). The building behind the bridge was, until 1900 (Meiji 33), the location of the German consulate. The German company Ahrens & Co. (アレンス) then used it through 1903 (Meiji 36), after which it was used by the Yokohama Specie Bank (横浜正金銀行, Yokohama Shokin Ginko). On the far right, the Nagasaki Post Office can be seen. Next to it, is the Nagasaki Office of the Great Northern Telegraph Co. (大北電信社). The barges were loaded with coal to supply steamers.
