Japanese woodcut print of balloon ascensions near a harbor. Center panel, one of three. This panel shows a balloon being prepared for ascension surrounded by a crowd of people in Western dress. This is almost certainly a second print (see A20140969000 through A20140971000) showing the scene in Philadelphia on July 14, 1860 when T.S.C. Lowe and William Paulin flew for the visiting Japanese Embassy. A20140975000 is the left panel of the scene, A20140977000 is the right panel.
