Could be Onoe Baiko VI (1870-1934) acting in the leading role of the old woman 'Ibara' in the kabuki drama 'Hitotsuya'.
His adoptive father Onoe Kikugoro V (1844-1903) held this role at the première in the Ichimuraza, april 1890. Kabuki specialists amongst us (not me) could confirm if Baiko VI also performed the same role during a subsequent reprise of that play.
