The signature reads Kot˘sei 湖東生. I don't know this artist. The publisher is Hasegawa Tsunejiro 長谷川常次郎.
The title of the print is "new year parade of the fire fighters in Tokyo" (t˘ky˘ kakush˘b˘ dezomeshiki-no zu 東京各消防出初式之図).
Internet resources give 1873 or 1899 as possible publication dates for this print.

(note that the third character of the signature is wrongly given as 正 here)
