photograph from a set of photos of Kabuki actors and Geisha in costume.
The original caption read:
Portraits of Japanese Kabuki actors and geisha. Unknown photographer, 1870s.
It went on auction, which you can see listed here, and there were 34 prints total, but none of them were of Onna Bugeisha. Just a heads up! There are images of Onna Bugeisha on this blog here.
