Postcard Delight: part 6

Japanese postcard This card, which depicts a lady sitting in front of a tree, is one of my favorites. I'm not really sure what the author's autograph stands for (か-something?), but the date is quite clear: 1912. Also be sure to check out the backside of the card. The addressee is a certain Nakamura Yoneko, living in Yokosuka. (Note: one of the previously posted cards also had a Yokosuka link.) The ink on the stamp reads 29.11.1, which is probably November 29 of Taishō 1 (= 1912).
