I'm pretty sure this is from one of Hiroshige I's many 'Famous Places in Edo' series, probably the one shown in the Van Vleck catalog (numbers 1980.1506 - 1980.1535). This particular print isn't shown there, though.
The thing is, though, that Hiroshige II did an almost identical series:
but I can't see this one well enough to read the date seals, etc in the lower left corner, to see which this is.
Any chance of a closeup (in focus!) of the lower left corner? Thanks!
