I don't know if the below information might be somehow relevant to your print.
Have a look at the Hiroshige series Kisokaidō rokujūkyū tsugi no uchi 木曾街道六拾九次之内 station 23 Iwamurata (Eisen) 岩村田
the scene of the seven men fighting is almost identical to the satire print except for the three children watching with amusement and 2 dogs, one biting a strange looking individual (symbol on kimono)
When searching Iwamurata, under brief history I found
1869 (Meiji 2) - The feudal domain was abolished and the prefecture became Iwamurata Prefecture , which was eventually absorbed into Nagano Prefecture.
With some luck a kind soul will figure out the rest
