Vintage Yukata labels

I was asked if there are any more of the yukata labels from my last post to look at so I'm posting a selection.  They're all from a collection I'm selling in the shop. These photos would have been attached to bolts of yukata fabric to show how the fabric would look when the garment was made up. I think these are all post-war, many from the 1960's.

This last one with his unusually cheery smile is my favourite...
