Also, I just bought the postcard "Evening at Lake Sai." It is a variant
of the image you show on your site. Mine has the Doi postcard seal and
title, as well as the Koitsu seal that look more like the ones used on
the Takemura prints. This was not dated, but the other postcard I bought
with this had a date of 1954…it is a reasonable supposition that they
were obtained at the same time, but there is no guarantee of that. A
scan is attached at 400x400.
