Captioned 當世風俗千姿 (Present-day customs in a thousand poses), this postcard shows two geigi (geisha) from the Shinbashi hanamachi (geisha district) in Tokyo, preparing for O-tsukimi (the moon viewing festival).

On the left is the meigi (talented or beautiful geisha) Eiryu I, while the geigi kneeling behind her might be Oimatsu, with whom she was often photographed.
