Unknown Meiji Fan Print 3

Hello All,

I recently obtained an ablum of almost 100 Japanese woodblock fan prints without a publishing date, but almost certainly late Meiji (my guess is 1895-1915). I have identified fans from some very well known (and not so well known) artists including:
Kamisaka Sekka
Suzuki Shonen
Okoku Konoshima
Tomioka Tessai
Imao Keinen
Yoshitsugu Haisan
Takeuchi Seiho
Kamagai Naohiko (maybe)
Kikuchi Keigetsu
Uemura Shoen
Kono Bairei
Ogata Gekko (not sure on this one)
Kikuchi Hobun (probably)
Kawabata Gyokusho

So all late Meiji artists, almost all of which seem to have Kyoto connections. The difficulty is that there are still prints which have not yet been identified, and some of them have many examples in the fan book. I am posting three examples that appear many times in the album, but that I have been unable to identify. Representatives from the three artists are posted here with enlarged signature blocks. Any identification by the Asian Art Forum community would be greatly appreciated.
