I've noticed that there seems to have been a bit of a micro-genre of these unsigned courtesan prints with brothel addresses. Though the styles depicted are broadly consistent with Eizan and Eisen designs of the 1810s-1830s, I think these are later, perhaps 1850s or 1860s. Certainly some Utagawa school artists, such as Yoshimori, were still producing such designs in that latter period.

Perhaps these designs were directly commissioned by the brothels themselves?
