It looks like the guy dragging the tuna head isn't wearing pants! They must have introduced a pants policy since it became such a tourist attraction!

The backs of the ladies in the postcards remind me of William Merritt Chase painting .

It's quite a cool print, isn't it? Love the massive tuna head on the trolley and the foreground guy with his bum up in the air. (Could that be a deba?) I think the place looks very much the same today; certainly the buildings and the people in a way, although I think these days it also looks a lot more congested than in this print.

As far as I know Tsukiji is due to be closed, torn down and re-developed. (Not sure if others are aware or not...) I wonder if the new place will be good? Probably a lot more posh. Anyway, maybe they should even scale back; certainly much of the world's fishstocks have met their end here. (Still Tsukiji processes 10% of the world's seafood each day from what I know.) There just isn't as much left of it to sell and eat.
