This is signed Hiroshige, and in view of trains not coming to Japan until early 1870s, that would mean Hiroshige III. But it seems a knockoff of Hiroshige III's 1874 Shimbashi Station at http://ocw.mit.edu/ans7870/21f/21f.027/throwing_off_asia_01/image/Y0185_TOA_l.jpg My print is crudely done, but from the inks and subject it seems a Meiji (1874?) knockoff. I know that circa 1900, there were many Hiroshige re-cuts, including some fantasy images that Hiroshige I never designed, but any info about this print would be appreciated.
