The upper left inset panel is a canal scene by Hiroshige III (1843-1894) showing a lotus-filled moat around the old Edo Castle walls, suggesting a Japanese-Chinese comparison. The upper right panel includes the standard of a fireman’s unit located near Edo Castle." (wall text from 2010 student exhibition for ARHI154 Japanese Prints)
