Physical description:

A recycled version of an earlier print at MFA Boston, with a different color scheme and a different actor on the left. However, someone forgot to change the title of the play, in the red box at upper right, and so it still refers to the earlier production, Irokurabe Aki no Nanakusa, at the Naka Theater in 1867.8.
