Additional Information Image was scanned from color slide. Note: A mikoshi is a divine palanquin. Shinto followers believe that it serves as the vehicle to transport a deity in Japan while moving between main shrine and temporary shrine during a festival or when moving to a new shrine. Often, the mikoshi resembles a miniature building, with pillars, walls, a roof, a veranda and a railing.--Wikipedia. Note: Original image circa 1874 by John Gray Brayton, American (ca 1820s - ca 1900s).
