160302-0038 - Nagoya Castle


Nagoya Meiji 1890s Kozaburo Tamamura

The honmaru (main enclosure) and the small tower of Nagoya Castle in Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture.

The castle was the home base of the Owari Tokugawa clan, which ruled Japan during the Edo period (1603-1868), and was built between 1610 and 1619.

It was destroyed by a US bombing raid in 1945. In 1959, a replica made of concrete was built.

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.
