Good Afternoon Everyone
I hope everyone is doing well. In the recent past, I was very fortunate to purchase an awesome woodblock copy of Hiroshige’s Satta Pass, Yui, of his famed 53 Stations of the Tokaido Road. When I took it out of the frame, I discovered the characters on the left and right side borders of the print. Can someone please interpret the characters for me and possibly determine the age of this woodblock? As always, I appreciate everything the researchers provide on this awesome forum!
Stay safe and healthy
