明治時代初期に撮影された磔と晒首の情景である。撮影者はFelice A. Beato( 1833年~ 1907年)。

The scene of the crucifixion was photographed in the early Meiji era (19th century), by Felice A. Beato (1833 ~1907).

磔にされているのは壮吉という25歳の奉公人で、盗賊団を店に手引きして主人一家を殺させたという。

The convict was Sokichi(壮吉), a 25-year-old shop employee. He brought a band of robbers into the shop, and they killed the shop owner and owner's family.

盗賊団は斬首の上で獄門に処せられたが、壮吉は主人殺しの重罪であったため、1人だけ磔にされたものである。

While other robbers were simply beheaded, Sokichi was sentenced crucifixion, because murdering his master was considered as a specially serious crime that deserves the extreme penalty.

撮影場所は横浜の闇坂(くらやみざか~「鞍止坂」と書くこともある) 刑場と伝えられている。

The location is reported as Kurayamizaka(闇坂, or 鞍止坂 in another way of writing), Yokohama.

なお、人工的に着色されて絵葉書にして販売されていたものであるが、元の写真は当然モノクロであるため、カラー情報を削除した。
