Japanese Garden  

Garden view from the open porch of a Japanese tearoom. [possibly Nagasaki environment, 1863-1873]. [Photo, hand coloured albumine print, from series of 42 prints at Spaarnestad Photo, by Felice Beato, Kusakabe Kimbei or Raimund baron von Stillfried.]

Taken from the flickr account of the National Archives of the Netherlands. Really beautiful vintage photographs from 19th/early 20th century Japan are the latest addition to its photostream.
