Oban Triptych.  Very good impression and colors. Some trimming and some traces of previous backing along verso edges.

On the night of 24 October 1894, the Japanese successfully crossed the Yalu River, by erecting a pontoon bridge underwater. Here the Japanese divers are succesfully fighting off some Chinese resistance, and thus went undedected.
