Yoshitoshi, Tsukioka: A fireman, looking left, holding the standard for district six
From Series: Firemen’s Standards of All Great Districts

I am becoming fascinated by the amount of work that is being made available via online image archives! Here is another rich source, in this case of Japanese woodcuts. Lovely, the image of a fireman! And its correspondence to the previously posted image of Rachel with the lamp does not go unnoticed. I love life’s little synchronicities!
