    print by Utagawa Masanobu signing Baidō Masanobu ga 梅堂政信画

    top margin : 大黒屋 Daikokuya (the courtisan house?), tentative reading of title : 新板*賤ぢさな益の圖

    left margin : date Meiji 17 = 1884. Below the date is the name of the publisher, which is barely readable, seems to end with 他田友吉 Otada Tomokichi?
