Hi Tina --

I posted some information when you asked about this print a few days ago... in case you missed the reply, here it is again:

It's a view of the Yokohama coastal railway, designed by Utagawa Yoshitora 歌川芳虎, and entitled "Yokohama kaigan tetsudō no zu" 横浜海岸鉄道之図. There's an impression of this at the Tokyo Gas Museum:

I can't quite make out the date/censor seals, but this would certainly be early 1870s.

Best,
