Comments: This is a gorgeous early post-war strike in oban tate-e format by Shoson Ohara. Shoson's black signature and red seal are in the lower left of the image, as is the Watanabe 6mm 'I' publisher's seal (used from 1946 to 1957 -- see here regarding Watanabe publisher seals). The two pinholes in the left margin are original to the print (used for drying the print).
