Summary
Three women dressed in elaborate kimonos with ornate hair accessories. Indoor studio setting.
Their ornate kanzashi (hair ornaments) are reminiscent of those worn by oiran or tayu, the highest ranking of geisha. The clothing and hair accessories would suggest that they are perhaps either entertainers or actresses dressed as entertainers.
Photographer unidentified.
