160302-0004 - Negishi


Yokohama Meiji 1880s Kimbei Kusakabe

Farms at Negishi (根岸) in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture.

This beautiful rural landscape was a short distance from the foreign settlement.

Negishi was called Mississippi Bay by the foreigners. Apparently this was coined by Commodore Perry whose flagship bore that name.

From a series of glass slides published (but not photographed) by Scottish photographer George Washington Wilson (1823–1893). Wilson’s firm was one of the largest publishers of photographic prints in the world.
