a scene from "Hana Momiji tsui no uchikake", performed at Kawarazaki theatre in 7/1850 fits into the period (c. 1850), see https://collections.mfa.org/objects/509478/actors-ichikawa-kuzo-ii-as-kanai-tanigoro-iwai -kumesaburo-i?ctx=cf4f5706-9578-4d2b-9d67-ffed7b32fcab&idx=2 and Waseda 100-6604, 100-6605 and 100-6606.
However, the heads on Yoshitora's print are not individually designed after actors; the print is more of a musha-e. See the Kunisada print shown: The revenge of Shiraishi (Shiraishi katakiuchi no zu, 白石敵討之圖).
