  1. 写真の台紙の中央右に「M.Kaida/開田写真館/本所区/押上通り」、左に変体仮名で「かいだ/おしあげ郵便局前」と読めます。
    「本所区」は東京市に1878年から1947年まで存在した区(現墨田区南部)。「押上通り」は今でも商店街として健在。東京スカイツリーの近くみたいです。

    On the mount it can be read:
    M.Kaida, Kaida Photo Studio, Honjo-ward, Oshiage-street (centre to right) /
    Kaida, Near Oshiage Post Office (left in Hentaigana)

    The Honjo-ward did exist in Tokyo city between 1878 and 1947 (currently known as south of Sumida-ward). Oshiage-street is still there as a shopping mall, which appears to be very close to the Skytree.
