Impressions taken from this plate  (29)
The copper plate has no maker's mark. It is close in size to another unmarked plate of the same date, Little Court [244], and to several later plates including After the Sale, Clothes Exchange, Houndsditch [357] and Gray's Inn Place [281], both dated 1887.
It was published by Messrs Dowdeswell and Thibaudeau with A Set of Twenty-six Etchings (the 'Second Venice Set') in 1886. It was cancelled with irregular crossed diagonal lines.

The plate is now in the Art Institute of Chicago. 4
