President Higuchi gives the permission to, and this blog introduces "old picture postcard of Nihonbashi Bridge".
It is the first this time.
Then it is ...
It is picture postcard when current Nihonbashi Bridge was performed rolling bridge of on April 3, 1911 (Meiji 44) first that you see.
In scenery of Nihonbashi Bridge, it seems to be this series that, in particular, there is much.
Stone bridge is thing same as the present thing, but innocence of bridge stands out because it is new.
There has not been the Metropolitan expressway yet on the bridge.
It is thing before the last time Tokyo Olympics that the Metropolitan expressway was done on the river. View is good.
Statue of giraffe is the same thing that of course you can see image of lion now.
Both giraffe, lions are products of Yorinaka Tsumaki (tsumakiyorinaka). Solemn.
According to the information that old-timer, S of correspondent gave to, the total cost of construction of bridge is for 523,692 yen, of course money at the time.
And about 10%, a little over 50,000 yen are with expense that this statue cost.
Image of four giraffes expressing prosperity of Tokyo City, image of four lions which similarly express the protection of Tokyo City are excellent.
As for lion sprinkling single forefoot, it is marked former Tokyo city.
・・Still, * Will it be only me that think of how to use money to be imbalance very much?
It is design of opening ceremony.
It seemed to be ceremony from 1:00 p.m. Besides, on the day it is rainy. It is gentle rain, but umbrella is bristling.
There is coarse oil-paper umbrella, too, but umbrella is indeed full in the end of the Meiji era.
"Kimura family" seemed to be chosen as opening ceremony, dedication of a new bridge.
Person of Kimura is the third generation couple, to have crossed Nihonbashi Bridge all together well in Nihonbashi Bridge.
Family who symbolized prosperity in this way would be rare in those days.
It is art object of the sleeve of bridge. It is sake barrel that it is written in "celebration rolling bridge" and the center, but it is accumulated.
It seems to be "cask-piling" that riverside fish market of Nihonbashi Bridge donated. It is smart arrangement.
Both bridge and cask-piling are light ups at night. Beautiful.
Nihonbashi Bridge street (current Chuo-dori Ave.) is festival state, too.
Cherry tree which was planted in commemoration of opening. Because it is April 3, is it just anthesis? We are beautiful at night.
We return time, and Nihonbashi Bridge before completion is under construction.
・・It continues to exhibition of Nihonbashi Bridge picture postcard performing collection of ・ President Higuchi, the second.
