This is "Yamashiro" (Province) from the series "Fūryū mu Tamagawa" (Fashionable Six Jewel Rivers) by Utamaro I ca 1804. This series counts of course 6 prints in total: Yamashiro, Ōmi, Settsu, Musashi, Mutsu and Kii.
I don't recognise the publisher's mark left but the hand-stamped red seal in the lower right margin is the collector's seal of Theodore Scheiwe (this collection was put up for auction at Christie's Oct 1989).
