My best guess here is that this reads:

Shinmachi Tsuchiya uchi Sakuragi tayū
新町槌屋内桜木太夫
(the Tayū Sakuragi of the Tsuchiya House in Shinmachi, Osaka)

Shitsuma しつま (kamuro)
Kigochō 亀五朝 or possibly Kigorō 亀五朗 (shinzō)

I'm not very confident about the first kanji of the tayū's name -- it could be 楼, giving 楼木 (possibly read "Yaguragi"?)

Also note that the first two kana of the kamuro's name are obsolete forms (from 志 and 津, respectively).

-A
