The ukiyo-e.org site is wacky. You'll note that as you click on the two similar prints at the bottom of the page, the Kunisada and Yoshiiku labels jump back and forth between the two pictures. The signature is Yoshiiku. The artist is Yoshiiku.
I see they date it to 1864. In this case, to date the print you need secondary information in addition to the date seal. Likely, they were able to discern the actor and play and when it was performed.
