■Change ... of handing over ferry ... old ship Matsumachi side of Chuo-ku history stroll <14> Tsukuda
There is Tsukuda Island ferry trace of old ship Matsumachi side in the Tsukuda-ohashi Bridge Nishizume north side. Before Tsukuda-ohashi Bridge bridging, we got in and out as ferry boat of the end of Sumida River from this place. There seems to have been ferry here from the Edo era when we read explanation board, but will see information how really about.
Last part of Edo era
It is ancient map of Ansei period. In the route of ferryboat, two of "handing over of Tsukuda" and "handing over of music hall" are created from the river mouth of gun bank river. Music hall is bum house (ninsokuyoseba) of Ishikawajima. In the bridge of two to appear in the mouth of gun bank river, the river mouth side was "gun bank Bridge" for the Meiji Taisho era period, and landside was "Kobashi".
To "Edo pictorial description of noted places" about this neighborhood, scene of ferry which we looked at by overlook is projected.
➊➋ is place with monument of this now in ferry of Edo period place. ➌ becomes the Tsukuda Island side.
Earlier period of Meiji
How about for the Meiji period? The mouth of gun bank river becomes ferry on map which is in the first half of the Meiji era as well as Edo period.
The Taisho era period in the latter half of the Meiji era
On map from last part of Meiji to the Taisho era period, we move to place (= Tsukuda-ohashi Bridge west) same as the present location.
Where is Tsukuda Island ferry trace of Edo period?
We look for ferry trace of Edo period. It is thought that ➊ has ferry of Edo period in figure of neighborhood that we looked at in Google Earth, and ➋ is place where monument is installed in now.
Gun bank river was filled up, but, in the mouth of gun bank river trace neighborhood, there is plaque of "sewage trachea undergrounding" for Sumida River building a breakwater now around "center Ward Minato first child play garden" (2-16, Minato), here is trace of river trace. It is adjacent, and "Shiomi guardian deity of children" (the photograph right) is enshrined. (@ AM)
