I've got a print by Hiroshige which is part of the serie 100 famous views of Edo. It is called Benter shrine and ferry at Haneda.
1) Compared to the one I found on the Tokai Bank site for example, one can notice a difference in the upper red cartouche (rectangular). What does this indicate about this print?
2) Besides there are no seals on the print itself (may be trimmed), but one can find 2 seals at the back of the print. Can these have any significance regarding japanese prints or not (since they are accompanying a handwritten text : I tried to have it translated, but it is apparently difficult for young Japanese people - one can find in the text family names and locations in Japan).
I've got some jpeg of all this. Thanks in advance for your help.
