The link below gives the title of the series (江戸八景 えどはっけい Edo Hakkei) and of the print (日本橋晴嵐 にほんばしせいらん Nihonbashi Seiran).

The other print pointed out by Alec has a slightly different title for the series (東都八景 toto hakkei [8 views of the eastern capital]). Edo was only named eastern capital in 1868 (if I am not mistaken). So the conclusion is that the two prints by the Carnegie Museum of Art and John Lord's print are recarved prints made in the Meiji era or later, while the one with the link below is from the Edo era.

(that page only give Edo period as the date)

PS. Thanks Alec for the link to the CMOA, I had completely misread Nihonbashi!
