The scroll seems to be drawn in the Taisho era (1912-1926).
There are several small spots at the top of the mounting, however, those are not so noticeable.
And there are some faint stains on the drawing part.
As a whole, the condition of this scroll is not so bad.
Drunken hermits (Sennin) and a San Kanji poem are drawn well and a little humorously.
The poem is written roughly about mental attitude for citizens.
This is tasteful hanging scroll.
