Noge in Yokohama Bushu, from the series “One Hundred Famous Views in the Various Provinces (Shokoku meisho hyakkei)” 武州横浜野毛
The series dates from the middle of Hiroshige II's career, when he was in his mid-thirties. At this point, he had just started using the name 'Hiroshige', since his master Hiroshige I had just died (in 1858), and Hiroshige II had taken over the gō 'Hiroshige'; the prints in this series are signed 'Hiroshige'.
The series title is in the tall rectangular cartouche in the top right corner; the title of each individual print is in the square cartouche to its left.
