Five actors in casual attire in A Cool Evening at Ryōgoku Bridge (両国橋夕涼之図) - Onoe Kikugorō V as 音羽屋清吉 and Ichikawa Sadanji I as 高島屋藤助 on the right, Kataoka Gadō III as 松島屋房八 and Nakamura Fukusuke III as 成駒屋小文吾 in the middle and an as yet unidentified actor as 柳橋の小ひで on the left

Identifier: 1885 Kunichika Fireworks.jpg

The actors are identified by their yagō or guild names. For example, Takashimaya Sadanji I is actually Ichikawa Sadanji I (1842-1904).

Perhaps the female figure on the right is not an actor at all, but the accompanying cartouche may only be a description.
