As with several of the 'Naval Review' copper plates (Dry Docks, Southampton [302], Bunting [304], The Turret Ship [305], Troopships [307], Her Majesty's Fleet: Evening [310] and Tilbury [312]), this bears on the verso the oval stamp of 'HUGHES & KIMBER (LIMITED) / MANUFACTURERS / LONDON E.C.'
The Tilbury plate was in Whistler's studio at his death and was bequeathed to Rosalind Birnie Philip (1873-1958) who gave it to the University of Glasgow in 1935. It was cancelled posthumously with a diagonal line from the top, near the left corner, to the bottom, to left of centre.
