Description: 伏見稲荷神社境内の初老の易者を撮影する。敷物を敷いた机の上に、積み重ねた数冊の書物と一束の筮竹と数本の筆を入れた竹筒が置かれている。易者は書物に筆で書き物をしている様子。1904年イギリス人写真家H・G・ポンティングの撮影。ポンティングによると、易者は少額の代金で、掌や人相を見て、恋愛・結婚・病気・商売・旅の運を占った、と言われる。 / A fortune teller plies his trade in the Fushimi Inari Shrine precincts. Books are piled on the table along with a few pens and a bamboo cylinder containing sticks for fortune telling. The fortune teller appears to be writing something. This was taken by the British photographer H. G. Ponting in 1904. According to Ponting, the fortune teller charged a small fee to predict romance, marriage, illness, business, and travel simply by looking at the palms and face.
