Written in pencil on verso: "Snap at Riverside/ N Ishikawa." Additional markings on verso, most likely publication/cropping guidelines.
A fine Japanese Pictorialist, Ishikawa hailed from Fokuoka in western Japan, and graduated from the prestigious Tokyo University. He was an industrialist by profession (in mining), and earned a good fortune in the field.
