Here the answer by Wiliam Pearl from the Kuniyoshi project:
The diptych with a ghost on a bridge shows kabuki actors Ichikawa Kodanji IV as Sato Yomoshichi (佐藤与茂七, left sheet) and Ichikawa Danjūrō VIII as Tamiya Iemon (神谷伊右衛門, right sheet) with Ichikawa Kodanji IV as Oiwas ghost. The play is Manete Mimasu yotsuya no kikigaki (当三升四谷聞書, Ghost stories at Yotsuya), and the date is the 9th month of 1848.
Thanks a lot!
