The actor in the oshi-e at the left is Ichikawa Shinsha I (1821-78) who took this name in 1845.
At the right, making joint sheets, is an oshi-e from the series 'Oiran dôchû sugata' (Presentation at the great oiran parade)．As far I can read, this girl seems to be from the Toshimaya ('Toshimaya uchi Ukurishi (?) tama' or 'Courtsesan Ukurishi from the Toshima house'). Both prints, published in Kyoto, date probably from the mid 1840s.
