Aki no Kamogawa odori and new maiko hikizuri!

This is my mystery Aki no Kamogawa odori.

I think it is sometime in the 50's and must be after 1952 because '52 was the first Aki no Kamogawa.
Any idea?
See the set here!

I was also lucky enough to purchase this maiko hikizuri today:

Meh you say?
Well you might know it better as this hiki:

Just different seller photos from different angles and someone used the flash on the camera... which explains the colour difference.
But same kimono :)
I'm very happy to get it. I've seen this photo floating around the net for years and have always admired it so I'm very proud to have it in my collection :)
