The pair of censors' seals (Muramatsu and Fukushima) give us the date range of 1847-1852. Within this period, the play 'Kinoshita Soga Megumi no Masagoji' was performed at the Nakamura-za Theatre in the 1st month of 1851, which starred Ichikawa Kodanji IV as Ishikawa Goemon, and Iwai Kumesaburo III as his wife Otaki. These are the two actors we see in your print.
