Notes (1st edition)?The seal of the publisher Baba Nobuhiko can be found on the verso of some examples of this print. The style of this scene is similar to that of Tsuchiya Koitsu. Given Koitsu was Baba's main artist, and the fact that Koitsu published a similar scene via Shobido, I have little doubt that this is by Koitsu despite not having an artist seal. The lack of a seal suggests the print may have been published without Koitsu's knowledge, or perhaps after Koitsu's death in 1949. A dating to the 1950's would suggest the latter reason.
Notes (this edition)?The following information was taken from the original web listing of this artwork. Often written by non-experts, there may be inaccuracies:

Vintage original, not photographic, Japanese Woodblock Print Postcard, artist signed. The postcard is unused and is in excellent condition. It has a very small rust? Stain at the top middle of the print. It measures approximately 3 1/2" x 5 1/2".

Note the seal of the publisher Baba Nobuhiko on the verso.
